Congratulations to Kodansha on 10 Years!
This year, Kodansha is celebrating 10 years of publishing manga in English. For the “10 Years of Kodansha Comics” event, every month, they will spotlight a classic series.
The January title is Akira by Katsuhiro Otomo, first published by Kodansha in October 2009. They have since released a hardcover Akira 35th Anniversary Edition Box Set, which won Eisners last year for Best Archival Collection/Project — Comic Books and Best Publication Design.
It’s the story of motorcycle gangs in the post-apocalypse Neo-Tokyo, and many have been affected by its epic scope.
You have a chance to win your own copy, along with enamel pins and an art book, if you fill out this survey. One recipient will be selected from all entries.
Author Otomo has participated in an interview at the Kodansha Comics website.
