Original Akira artwork puts you at ground zero of the destruction of Neo TokyoS

Check out this incredibly detailed, starkly rendered artwork from Katsuhiro Otomo's original Akira comic. You can see every beam and window of Neo Tokyo as it's destroyed.

Sci-Fi-O-Rama scanned in these images from the end of Akira book three, as published by Dark Horse Comics, and the level of detail you can see in the high-res scans is just phenomenal. It feels like a real city, and the blank whiteness of the destruction encroaching on it feels visceral. Check out a few more here, and more Akira stuff at the link. [Sci-Fi-O-Rama]
