●BOOK● OTOMO THE COMPLETE WORKS 3: HIGHWAY STAR (ハイウェイスター )


The third volume of OTOMO THE COMPLETE WORKS collects 12 short manga works created by Katsuhiro Otomo from 1976 to 1977 when he was 22 to 23 years old. Even though this book shares its title with the 1979 edition of HIGHWAY STAR (ハイウェイスター) published by Futabasha, its content differs greatly as this new volume collects Otomo's short stories in the chronological order in which they where published for the first time in various magazines back in the day.

In addition to the fore mentioned book, this volume collects stories from SHORT PEACE (ショート・ピース) published by Kisōtengaisha in 1979 and re-published by Futabasha in 1984 and also from GOOD WEATHER published by Kitansha in 1981. All this books have been out of print for a long time so finally this stories can now be enjoyed with a pristine printing quality. The manuscripts that had colors are also reproduced in color, as they were first published in magazines.
