I took a look at this, too. The Katsuhiro Ōtomo influence is evident, almost pre-Akira at that. There are several manga-ka, the creators, who have changed the genre in their own ways, more often than not through both their artwork and narratives. That’s something you don’t really see in American comics.
The multitalented Mr. Ōtomo is one of those double threats.
