Opus 2

Satoshi Kon Bonnier Media Deutschland GmbH Comics & Graphic Novels

Satoshi Kon (1963-2010) zählt zu den renommiertesten Anime-Regisseuren der Gegenwart. Seine Filme überzeugen durch ihre virtuose Umsetzung und das geschickte Spiel mit den Grenzen zwischen Fiktion und Realität. Genau diese Qualitäten offenbaren auch seine Manga-Werke, die erst vor kurzem in Japan wiederveröffentlicht wurden. In dem zweiteiligen Werk OPUS wird der Protagonist, ein Manga-Zeichner, förmlich in sein Werk hineingezogen und ist plötzlich mit den Geschehnissen und Charakteren der von ihm kreierten Welt konfrontiert. Das Action-betonte Epos brilliert sowohl grafisch als auch erzählerisch durch verblüffende, bisweilen philosophische Ideen. 2013 wurde OPUS in Frankreich mit dem »Prix Asie de la Critique ACBD« prämiert und 2014 auf die Shortlist des Comic-Salons Angoulême der besten Comics gesetzt.

Seraphim 266613336 Wings

Mamoru Oshii Dark Horse Comics Comics & Graphic Novels

Two of the most acclaimed anime directors of all time, Mamoru Oshii (Ghost in the Shell), and Satoshi Kon (Perfect Blue) came together to create a manga: Seraphim: 266613336 Wings. Written by Oshii and drawn by Kon, Seraphim is the story of a future Earth devastated by the "Angel Plague," a pandemic that induces apocalyptic visions in the afflicted, even as it ossifies their bodies into dead, seraphic forms. A cult-ridden, army-backed medical unit journeys into the heart of a dying Asian city accompanied by Sera, a mysterious girl linked to the phenomenon itself. Have they come here to kill or cure--and is the Angel Plague a withered branch on the tree of life, or somehow a new flowering of existence?

Satoshi Kon S Opus

Satoshi Kon Dark Horse Comics Comics & Graphic Novels

Brilliant anime director Satoshi Kon (Paprika, Paranoia Agent, Tokyo Godfathers, Millennium Actress, Perfect Blue) died tragically young in 2010 at the age of 46. Before he became a director, he was a manga artist, and Dark Horse is honored to remember Kon with the release of Satoshi Kon's OPUS, an omnibus collection of a two-volume manga from 1996, created by Kon on the eve of his first film. OPUS contains the mastery of both realism and surrealism that would make Kon famous in Perfect Blue, as a manga artist becomes drawn into his own work and realizes the deadline he's up against is to stop a vicious serial killer before he can spill more innocent blood--not merely ink!
