Hello new readers! David Brothers of Comics Alliance was kind enough to link to the Otomblr on CA and took the opportunity to wax poetic about a particularly great sequence in AKIRA. It’s a nice piece of writing, go check it out.
This is as good a time as any to link to the pieces Brothers has been doing over on his own blog, 4th letter. David has been on a roll writing about AKIRA lately, with a bunch of great pieces running down various critical threads trying to nail down why exactly AKIRA rules and how exactly Otomo is so fucking amazing. I’ve been meaning to link to them for the last week but I’ve been busy with an art show and getting a new Studygroup12 together, so hey: check out his 4th letter posts tagged “katsuhiro otomo’s Akira” while yr clicking on the linkys!
