04 Aug / 20th Century Boys (vol. 14) by Naoki Urasawa, with the cooperation of Takashi Nagasaki, English adaptation by Akemi Wegmüller
The Friend might be dead, but his Friendship and Democracy Party (FDP) seems stronger than ever. Now that their latest bloody virus has been unleashed all over the world, no one is safe. The death toll keeps exponentially rising …
Yoshitsune realizes the only way to determine the extent of FDP’s ultimate plot is to travel back to the fateful summer of 1971 when Kenji and all the buddies began to grow up and scatter, busy with their increasingly committed lives. To get into the Virtual World at Friend Land, Yoshitsune needs Kanna’s schoolmate Koizumi to guide the way – kicking and screaming or not.
With Kanna watching closely, Yoshitsune and Koizumu embark on a creepy game of life and death … and when things get too dangerous, Kanna forces her way into the other side. The trouble is, a couple of unexpected others are about to join the hair-raising excitement. Friends they may be, but they’re anything but friendly!
So what really happened that night? And how will Kanna and crew ever get out to find the good guys?
