Icaro is a thrilling manga science fiction adventure in the tradition of Akira, Ghost in the Shell and Clamp's sf sagas. Icaro is the mind-bending, fast-paced adventure of a young man, Icaro, with the ability to fly and a young woman, Yukiko, who risks her life -- and more -- to help Icaro achieve his dream. Best of all, it capitalizes on Taniguchi's ability to depict a vast and oppressive advanced science laboratory that has made Icaro its guinea pig and will use all its resources to keep him imprisoned for study.
Icaro's fight to be free and Yukiko's sacrifice to aid him in his quest make this one of the most inspiring manga stories and one of the first significant original manga collaborations between East and West. (Source: MangaUpdates)

Icaro is a piece of collaboration between Moebius (real name, Jean Giraud), creating the story, and Jiro Taniguchi, being responsible for the art. The concept of a team effort between both famous french writer and japanese mangaka sure raises the bar of expectation for this manga alot, which is eventually the reason why the reader would be left with bitter taste at it's end, both creators are masters in their respective genres, but this work cerntainly doesn't solidify their fame.

The synopsys sounds grand, complex and intriguing, and nothing like that can be said for the actual content of the story, it read more
