Urasawa Naoki Talks with Top European Artists

He was joined by the famous team of Benoît Peeters and François Schuiten, the scriptwriter and artist for the collection Les Cités Obscures (published in English as Cities of the Fantastic), which won the grand prize in the Manga Division of the Agency for Cultural Affairs’ Japan Media Art Festival.
