Brilliant anime director Satoshi Kon (Paprika [2006], Paranoia Agent [2004], Tokyo Godfathers [2003], Millennium Actress [2001] and Perfect Blue [1997]) died tragically young in 2010 at the age of 46. This collection of a two-volume manga from 1996 was created by Kon on the eve of his first film. Opus contains the mastery of both realism and surrealism that would make Kon famous in Perfect Blue, as a manga artist becomes drawn into his own work and realises the deadline he's up against is to stop a vicious serial killer before he can spill more innocent blood - not merely ink!
