"All of the posters are reproduced very nicely indeed and definitely do justice to Otomo's original artwork. Purely from the standpoint of quality illustration and draftsmanship, Otomo is arguably in a class of his own. These pieces show Otomo's skill and attention to detail at scale and the results are marvelous."--Ollie Barder "Forbes.com "
About the Author
Katsuhiro Otomo is a Japanese manga artist and film director. Born in 1954 in Miyagi, he debuted in 1973 with his manga GUN REPORT, and began attracting acclaim with titles like DOMU and AKIRA in the 1980s. As an animator, he worked on sci-fi animations like GENMA-TAISEN and the CONSTRUCTION CANCELLATION ORDER segment of anthology film, NEO TOKYO, which he wrote and directed. In 1988, he made his feature-length directorial debut with the animated film AKIRA. One of the most influential and acclaimed animated films to come out of Japan, it was a trailblazing work in the spread of Japanese animation to the world. Among his other films as a director are STEAMBOY (2004), MUSHI-SHI (2007) and SHORT PEACE (2013, COMBUSTIBLE segment). He has been inducted into the Eisner Award Hall of Fame (2012), has received the Purple Medal of Honor (2013, Japan) and in 2015 was the first manga artist to receive the Grand Prix de la ville d'Angouleme (2015, France).
