One of the top-selling manga in Japan today, with the first four volumes having sold more than 2,300,000 units since March 2013, now hits North American shores. AJIN combines super-natural themes with sci-fi action for a very modern high-paced yarn that should compete with most popular current manga and comic titles.
Gamon Sakurai is a Japanese comic book artist from Tokyo. Born in
1986, Sakurai was selected for the Afternoon Magazine Four Seasons
Award for New Comic Artists. Upon being selected for the award his
short story was published and he was selected for editorial review
by manga publishing giant Kodansha.
Sakurai would make his publishing debut with indie publisher Issuisha in 2010, releasing a short story anthology. He would then work with Kodansha to work on his first feature length series Demi-human in 2012. In 2013, AJIN was selected as the #3 manga in 2013 by Japanese comic editors and mangaka.
Horrifying circumstances and gut-wrenching scenes make the concept of immortality one less desired and AJIN: DEMI-HUMAN worth a read... It s a serious look into the depravity of humans, raising issues of discrimination, human rights, and human experimentation. -ComicsVerse
