Taiyo Matsumoto's No 5


Some moths ago, i've managed to read and extract this unique (or can I juz say weird) manga by Taiyo Matsumoto. Taiyo Matsumoto is an influential manga artist nowadays in Japan which has been famous for his comics, namely PingPong. Thru this comic, it's obviously revealed that he has much been influenced by European comic artists styles such as Moebius.
Somes even claimed that No. 5 is one of the rarest manga in today's market. No more than 1000 copies of this manga has been sold worldwide. Anyway, thanks zillions for Mr. Karna Mustaqim for let me borrowing this...hehe.

no.5 is my favourite book of all time. comic art at its purest. i only have the first 2 volumes and would love to order the rest from a japanese site with the intention of one day paying someone to translate all of them for me. i heard that scans of the first 2 are floating about, no word on the rest though... it's an injustice i tell you. gets me so down...
