20th Century Boys: Chapter 2

de Yukihiko Tsutsumi

Synopsis

We used to have an unsolved matter. A year ago, we’d left Kenji and his childhood friends facing a desolate outlook: with the image of a giant robot in the middle of Tokyo and a bunch of unanswered questions. Who is the masked leader called Friend? Why did he reproduce what they wrote in a book as children? Will Kenji be able to save the world? Chapters two and three of this surprising trilogy, based on one of the most successful comics in history, now finally arrive. We wake up, after a year of lethargy, in the future, with Kenji turned into a terrorist and his niece determined to discover the truth. It’s time to unveil the mystery.
