Naoki Urasawa
« on: January 29, 2011, 05:34:12 PM »
I've read Naoki Urasawa's Monster, 20th/21st Century Boys and I'm about to finish reading his Pluto now and I must say that I've never read any manga as good.
I went over to ANN to look up his other works but they all seem to be quite unknown. Does anyone have any recommendation? Billy Bat seems to be interesting so I might give that a try.

For those who haven't read any of Naoki Urasawa's works: He writes mystery and drama themed manga which are (at least in the three manga I mentioned) revolving around the identity of an evil mastermind. Monster and 20th Century Boys have their ups and downs but I'd almost say that I find the both of them equally good, 20th Century Boys is a lot longer than Monster though. Pluto isn't as good but still awesome.

Info from ANN:
20th Century Boys
21st Century Boys (Sequel. CONTAINS SPOILERS)

I don't think "unknown" is the correct word, more like people nowadays don't respect and enjoy the classics like they should. Ever since the advent of the Shounen Trinity. Urasawa overall had me interested with his modernist/technology themes, but I never gave it the time to read them up. Pluto specifically is one of the ones that's on my backlist I haven't read.
