This month japanese magazine BRUTUS reboots its original magazine special on Katsuhiro Otomo. The magazine comes with an edition of 'Park' by Katsuhiro Otomo.
The magazine is on standard glossy magazine paper but the comic comes on what feels like Japanese 110kg matt paper and has been printed nicely.
The magazine has an in-depth bibliography, in depth articles on Akira, Short Peace, his ongoing relationship with Comme De Garcon, interviews with his peers and current players, an article on Otomo and his artist son Shoei, and other written articles.
On a Shoei note, he has an art exhibition currently running in Tokyo. Black Hook Press is going to pop along later in the week. If you are in Tokyo details of the show can be found >>>HERE<<<.
This edition of Brutus is well worth buying if you like Otomo ephemera. The Brutus Magazine is 100 pages,magazine glossy paper. The accompanying comic is 24 pages, 110kg matt paper.
The book and accompaying comic are priced at 780 yen.
