Experience Katsuhiro Otomo's film Steamboy in this spectacular and immersive full-color ani-manga. The highly anticipated anime production from the director of Akira is set in an alternate historical London in 1866 where competing inventors create every possible weapon and contraption powered by the steam-and the imagination. Ray Steam caught between his father, Eddie, and grandfather-faces a larger battle where science is used for good and potentially evil motives. Meticulous and detailed illustrations, which are Otomo's signature, were initially hand-drawn for accuracy and integrated with digital technology to create an atmospheric backdrop for the story. The film which demonstrated Otomo's unique story-telling and illustrative artistry finds new voice in this book where readers can explore the steam universe and return for new discoveries.
