About the Author

Naoki Urasawa's career as a manga artist spans more than twenty years and has firmly established him as one of the true manga masters of Japan. Born in Tokyo in 1960, Urasawa debuted with BETA! in 1983 and hasn't stopped his impressive output since. Well-versed in a variety of genres, Urasawa's oeuvre encompasses a multitude of different subjects, such as a romantic comedy (Yawara! A Fashionable Judo Girl), a suspenseful human drama about a former mercenary Pineapple ARMY; story by Kazuya Kudo), a captivating psychological suspense story (Monster), a sci-fi adventure manga (20th Century Boys), and a modern reinterpretation of the work of the God of Manga, Osamu Tezuka (Pluto: Urasawa x Tezuka; co-authored with Takashi Nagasaki, supervised by Macoto Tezka, and with the cooperation of Tezuka Productions). Many of his books have spawned popular animated and live-action TV programs and films, and 2008 saw the theatrical release of the first of three live-action Japanese films based on 20th Century Boys. No stranger to accolades and awards, Urasawa is a three-time recipient of the prestigious Shogakukan Manga Award, a two-time recipient of the Osamu Tezuka Cultural Prize, and has received the Kodansha Manga Award. Similarly, Monster has been nominated three times for the Eisner Award in America. Urasawa has also become involved in the world of academia, and in 2008 accepted a guest teaching post at Nagoya Zokei University, where he teaches courses in, of course, manga.

Amazon.com: 5.0 out of 5 stars  2 reviews
5.0 out of 5 stars Still going strong! July 24 2011
By Kid Kyoto - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
After 4 volumes of build up 20th Century Boys starts to move. Most of the action is now happening in the summer of 2000. The Friends have infiltrated the Japanese government at the highest levels and are moving ahead with their plans.

Most of the book focuses on 'Shogun' a mysterious criminal in Thailand with a soft spot for protecting women. We soon see his role in the overall story.

I really can't say anything more, Urasawa's story is dense and well plotted and still unfolding, but it's clear he has a plan and this is worth the ride.
5.0 out of 5 stars Going to sound like a broken record. . . it's great. Nov. 17 2009

Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Urasawa is one of the best storytellers and artists around. I can't say enough good things about 20th Century Boys and Pluto. I'm one of those people who can tell how a tv show or book is going to end at the beginning.
Urasawa keeps me guessing about what will happen next. Please check out Monster and Master Keaton too.
