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).

Meanwhile, the FDP seem to have their own agenda, that maybe even the Friend knows nothing about...considering the original Friend was killed.
Who is this new Friend? What are the FDP up to? And what will happen to Kanna, Otcho and Yukiji as they have decided to make their assassination attempt against the Friend?

Naoki Urasawa's "20th Century Boys" just gets better and better and as we now are nearing the final stretch of the series, one can only wonder what Naoki Urasawa has planned. And I'm guessing that we are going to see a lot of deaths and possible demise of several main characters. So far, "20th Century Boys" has been edgy and hasn't pulled any punches so far.

Now it is some darn good stalling and padding, but when it takes 3 pages to ask a question and 3 more to answer it's pretty obvious what's going on.
In this book some of the minor mysteries of the last few volumes are resolved and the heroes come together for a confrontation with the Friend.
As the series draws to an end I hope the pace will pick up, the quality of work is still strong but the padding is obvious.
