Book Description: The chilling first three volumes of the groundbreaking manga series--collected here in one blood-soaked volume One ninth-grade class, 42 students, marooned on an island and forced to kill or be killed in a government-sanctioned, televised game called The Program. The rules: after three days, only one student can remain alive or they all die. Weapons are handed out and each student is sent out into the field alone--unprepared for the horror that awaits them. Many classmates quickly turn on each other in this twisted battle for survival, but amid the betrayals and rising body count, new friendships are forged and existing love gives new meaning to the phrase, "Till death do we part." With a hard-hitting English adaptation by acclaimed writer Keith Giffen, this series is brutal, honest...and not to be missed.This collector's edition of the cult classic is filled with bonus features:--New, never-before-seen foreword from writer Koushun Takami--New color cover art from manga-ka Masayuki Taguchi--Unpublished character sketches from manga-ka Masayuki Taguchi--Color pages including covers from the first three volumes--Weapons details by Eliot R. Brown (Punisher's Armory)--"Second Opinion" on characters' injuries from an actual E.R. physician--"On the Couch" character psychiatric evaluation from an actual psychologist
