Book Description

July 14 1992
Japanese artist Masamune Shirow is well known to discriminating comics readers. American editions of his spectacular graphic epics have been highly praised and voraciously collected. Now, his gorgeous and highly detailed color art has been collected for the first time into a single, handsome trade paperback. Beautifully printed in Japan and featuring text in both Japanese and English, this package features nearly two hundred full-color Shirow works, 47 published for the first time anywhere in the world! This book is a nearly complete archive of Shirow's color work from 1981 to 1991, including material from Appleseed, Dominion, Black Magic, Orion, and much more. This is an absolute must for fans of Shirow, science-fiction and fantasy art, and manga.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good book Sept. 28 2011
By Charles
An excellent book to have for those who like the art of Shirow. It has short descriptions of the making of every illustration. In some cases it also shows the process of from the rough to the final piece.

5.0 out of 5 stars Mecha & Babes!!! July 12 2003
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Do you like mecha? Do you like manga babes in sexy-skimpy suits piloting mecha? Then buy this book...
But seriously, if you're a fan of Shirow-san's work and have a healthy intrest in japanese anime, specifically Appleseed and Ghost in the Shell you should get this book.
From its full colour prints to the scratch drawings, concept art and insightful footnotes, INTRON DEPOT 1 is an excellent & essential purchase for all anime fans.

5.0 out of 5 stars Mechs, chicks & Shirow-oddities July 12 2003
By glenn booth - Published on Amazon.com
I bought this book from a local comic/game store a couple of years ago basically of my love of all things mecha and an intrest in Shirow-sans work and this book doesn't dissappoint!!!
It has it all!! Concept drawings, Scratch designs, full colour prints and footnotes giving insight to each peticular piece of work, be it the mecha, or the series it was created for.
If you are a fan of great art, mecha or women dressed in skimpy suits piloting mecha this book will suit you fine. If you are looking for some insight to both the animated series it covers (AppleSeed & Ghost in the Shell are the main topics & highlights) or intersted in what makes Shirow Masamune "tick" it is invaluable.
To conclude this rating, buy it. Buy it now.
