Shohei Otomo has made the world of comics a little less funny, and a little more badass. The illustrations by the Japanese artist feature somewhat classic manga drawings, but with an angry twist.

The manga drawings by Shohei Otomo feature some graphic images of violence, but also more tame images with a slightly odd attitude about them. This collection is definitely worth seeing for yourself.

Corporations and brands can capitalize on these animated commodities by investing in advertising partnerships that allow for maximum revenue stream utilization (toys, video games, comic books).
