About Otherworld Barbara Manga Volume 1 (Hardcover)
Otherworld Barbara features story and art by Moto Hagio.
In the latest English-language release from one of the most influential manga creators of all time, Tokio is a “dream pilot,” a detective who enters criminals’ dreams to discover their motives. While investigating Aoba, who killed her parents and ate their hearts when she was nine, he discovers a phantom island named Barbara. Then there’s a mysterious and missing geneticist, an eccentric clergyman, a grieving grandmother granted temporary youth, and a psychologist killed by a freak tornado. Hagio offers a sci-fi explanation for these seemingly random paranormal elements, and makes it all matter with believable characters in complex and subtle relationships.
