Summary, etc.:
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. Tetsuo, an angry young man with immense and rapidly growing psychic abilities, has done the unthinkable: he has released Akira and set into motion a chain of events that could once destroy the city and drag the world to the brink of Armageddon. Resistance agents and an armada of government forces race against the clock to find the child with godlike powers before his unthinkable destructive abilities are unleashed! One of the true international classics of graphic fiction and unavailable for nearly a decade in America, Akira has once again taken America by storm, its first Dark Horse volume selling out almost overnight in comic shops and bookstores across the country!
