In the 21st century, the glittering Neo-Tokyo has risen from the rubble of a city destroyed by an apocalyptic telekinetic blast from a young boy called Akira--a subject of a covert government experiment gone wrong. Imprisoned for three decades in frozen stasis, Akira sleeps, but his awakening is a terrifying inevitability. Surrounded by those who want to use him, those who want to destroy him and those who want only to protect him, Akira is the nexus of a struggle that could spell mankind's destruction ... or its salvation. One of the true international classics of graphic fiction--and the inspiration for the classic Akira animated film soon to be re-released in America--and unavailable in an English-language edition for nearly a decade, Akira has once again taken America by storm. Katsuhiro Otomo is acclaimed worldwide as a master storyteller, and Akira is a timeless, sweeping work of unforgettable beauty, horror, and imagination. Set off by the bullet of a would-be assassin, Neo-Tokyo has been leveled by Akira's godlike psychic fury. Now cut off from the rest of world, the Great Tokyo Empire rises, with Akira its king, Tetsuo its mad prime minister, and a growing army of fanatic acolytes. Forces on the outside still search for a way to stop Akira, and the answer may lie in the hands of the mysterious Lady Miyako, a powerful member of Akira's psychic brotherhood. But the solution to harnessing Akira may ultimately be more dangerous than Akira himself!
