20th Century Boys

20thcenturyboys01This is the best comic book I have read for years. I hesitate to call it manga. It is manga but banish thoughts of Naruto from your mind. This is grown up stuff — compelling, scary, Eisner winning stuff. 20th Century Boys (a reference to the T.Rex song) tells the story of a group of childhood friends who as adults confront a mysterious and murderous cult-leader known only as “Friend” who himself seems to have some connection with their childhood memories. Who is “Friend” and what set him off on his murderous spree?

Told in three time-periods and covering 22 volumes, this is a manga comic to spend a month enjoying.
