Viz’s Urusawa campaign

We all know that Viz will be releasing Urusawa’s 20th Century Boys in February of next year, but did you also know about PLUTO?

Pluto: Urasawa x Tezuka was presented at the Viz panel today as a title that will accompany the Century Boys release, also in Feb. PLUTO is essentially an offshoot from one of the supporting characters in Tezuka’s Astro Boy, that Urasawa takes and creates an alternate story for. Marc Wiedenbaum calls it a reinvision of Tezuka’s work by Urusawa.

Viz previewed two manga trailers, one for each series, and they look awesome. It’s Urasawa afterall. Even Junot Diaz agrees.
