About the Author
Naoki Urasawa's career as a manga artist spans more than twenty years and has firmly established him as one of the true manga masters of Japan. Born in Tokyo in 1960, Urasawa debuted with BETA! in 1983 and hasn't stopped his impressive output since. Well-versed in a variety of genres, Urasawa's oeuvre encompasses a multitude of different subjects, such as a romantic comedy (Yawara! A Fashionable Judo Girl), a suspenseful human drama about a former mercenary (Pineapple ARMY; story by Kazuya Kudo), a captivating psychological suspense story (Monster), a sci-fi adventure manga (20th Century Boys), and a modern reinterpretation of the work of the God of Manga, Osamu Tezuka (Pluto: Urasawa x Tezuka; co-authored with Takashi Nagasaki, supervised by Macoto Tezka, and with the cooperation of Tezuka Productions). Many of his books have spawned popular animated and live-action TV programs and films, and 2008 saw the theatrical release of the first of three live-action Japanese films based on 20th Century Boys. No stranger to accolades and awards, Urasawa received the 2011 and 2013 Eisner Award for Best U.S. Edition of International Material—Asia, and is a three-time recipient of the prestigious Shogakukan Manga Award, a two-time recipient of the Osamu Tezuka Cultural Prize, and also received the Kodansha Manga Award. Urasawa has also become involved in the world of academia, and in 2008 accepted a guest teaching post at Nagoya Zokei University, where he teaches courses in, of course, manga.

It's strange how ]Monster originally came out in blocks, not designed for this 400-page format, yet how it fits that format so well. Every time I finish a volume, I can't wait for the next one to come out. The highlight of the volume by far is the confrontation in the library. Naoki Urusawa is so good with situations, drama, characters, and just about anything that I can't help but recommend his work. If you've started this series, go ahead and finish it. *****
Tenma goes off to Prague in search of new information, and the audience is introduced to our newest character, Grimmer, and he is fantastic. He's so nice, you just know something bad is going to happen to him eventually (not a spoiler, I haven't read ahead). Anyway, the focus of the second half of the volume is on Grimmer and his quest to find information about 511 Kinderheim. I can't wait to see what happens!
