Don't get me wrong, it's awesome, and I can't wait to see the full thing.

I just can't imagine commissioning James Jean for a a movie print.

Seems like the artists choose the movie.

I feel like James Jean isn't the kinda artist that would get artistically compromised in a commission of his choosing.

And seems to have the artistic freedom to do his work of his own the rest of the time.

It's a private commission that wasn't cheap. I thought it was hilarious. They were able to commission one of the best artists on the planet and they choose akira :lol: :lol: Sure it's a great fit artistically and it looks awesome but cmon now.
What would you have them do instead of Akira?


Akira. I couldnt think of a better match-up. Incredibly influential film , i love it
