Dream Fossil is a collection of 15 short manga stories by the late Satoshi Kon. These short stories, serialized in a variety of magazines and collections in the 1980s, give a rare glimpse into the early stages of Kon's uniquely compelling style of storytelling. The buds of dream-like themes and imaginative worldviews that would blossom in his later animated works are also readily apparent. Yet the flights of fancy are anchored by knowing, empathetic portrayals of the very human characters at the center of each story.

Dream Fossil is a collection of various short stories written by the late Satoshi Kon and whether you will enjoy this manga will largely come down to one question: Are you a fan of Kons other works?

If your answer is yes, then pick this up right away. Dream Fossil offers an unique look into the career of one of the greatest directors anime has seen to this day, and although not all stories are equally fascinating most are very entertaining.
If you pay close attention you will notice that some stories are very similar to some of Kons movies - Beyond the sun feels a read more
