Best Manga Out In The USA A Must Buy
Viz just finished releasing all of Naoki Urasawa's Monster and now their bringing his series he created after it. This manga is amazing to say the least the plot and story is great and it how its unfolds is beautiful. The story starts off in 1997 but has flashbacks to 1969 for plot development and other years even eventually having flash forwards to 2014 before showing you rest of the events in 2000. Its very creative,bold and complex in how the story unfolds. You could say its like the Lost tv series with the flashbacks and flash forwards.Even in first few pages of vol 1 is actually a flash forward to 2018 and you see the rest of that scene in volume 21 or 22. (I forget)

Its great that Naoki Urasawa's work is coming to the USA the only bad thing is I'd rather have Yawara and Happy before Pluto since Pluto isn't really Urasawa its Tezuka's world expanded.

Also this series has great re-read value even better once you have more volumes so this series is worth the money.
