Akira's Katsuhiro Otomo Working on New Manga
By Joseph Luster
One thing the world can never have enough of is manga by Akira creator Katsuhiro Otomo. Thankfully, an interview with Japanese magazine Geijutsu Shincho reveals something new up his sleeve: a long-form shonen manga.
Set in the Meiji era, Otomo's new project will be his first long-form work since Akira, and also marks his first foray into shonen territory. The interview was part of a longer feature on Otomo, which included a new science fiction short, "Dj Teck's Morning Attack," presented in full color. Check out the sample image below:
Hopefully it won't be too long before we learn more details about Katsuhiro Otomo's new manga project, but the announcement itself is certainly cause for excitement.
