5.0 out of 5 stars Better than the film, 14 May 2002
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Akira: Vol.1: Bk. 1 (Paperback)
Same Plot, same characters and even the same story, but told in a completely different way. I bought this book because I loved Akira the film, and I wanted to read the original comic. I was expecting it to very similar to the film as most films based on books are, but I couldn’t have been more wrong.
The story is so good they couldn’t contain it in one film. So the film is an incredibly cut down version of the comics. If you loved the film you are going to be in Heaven with this book. As it tell more about the characters and the events that happen.
I wouldn’t recommend it to anyone that hasn’t read comics before, but if you have this is an amazing read with great lustrations.
