*Marvel: A double departure from our ‘norms’ this update, being both a modern (1980s) series and a translated manga, which we don’t usually deal in at all. However, Katsuhiro Otomo’s 1982 tale of covert psychic operatives in a post-World War III nuclear-devastated Japan gripped the imagination of the Japanese public, becoming a multi-million seller, and spinning off a hit anime feature movie. Marvel’s Epic division started repackaging the translated series in full-colour Prestige Format volumes in 1988, and its success resulted in Akira being the first manga series to be reprinted in its entirety. We have most (lacking only #7) of the first 33 issues of this highly-acclaimed 38 issue series new in stock, the first and second issues both being first (English language) printings. Pictured is #1 FN/VF £10, with most of the other issues averaging VF; details on the others may be found in our catalogue listing.
