Akira - volume 5 - sc - 2011Artikelnummer: 9781935429074
From the flooded wasteland of rubble and anarchy that was Neo-Tokyo rises the Great Tokyo Empire, populated by a ragtag army of zealots and crazies who worship and fear Akira and his immensely powerful mad prime minister, Tetsuo. The world at large is not taking the threat lying down, and the military strength of the planet is massing to take on the empire, but will technology's most advanced weaponry be enough to destroy Akira? And are Tetsuo's rapidly growing paranormal abilities a potentially greater threat?
