From publicity material: Weapons of mass destruction. U.S. Imperialism. Government conspiracy. Chemical warfare. Genocide. Serial murder... Osamu Tezuka's classic reads as if taken from the headlines of today's daily newpapers or the lead in the nightly news. Yet, it was published more and thirty years ago.
As a youn gster, Yuki was the victim of a poison gas, an accident that wiped out an island's inhabitants, and was hastily covered up by his government. One of only two survivors, he grew afflicted with an inability to distinguish right from wrong. A man without a conscience, he is the darling of finance and politics, and secretly a master at misdirection and murder, focused and driven, Yet, what makes Yuki a monster also fuels his drive to uncover a conspiracy against the people. But will exposing the truth be enough to assuage a man with no soul?
