Back really long ago, 2013 that is, famed international fashion house Comme des Garcons (who have probably the best store designs of anyone in fashion) teamed up with Nobrow and manga star Katsuhiro Otomo, author of "Akira." Even better, CDG asked Nobrow to mash Otomo's work with other Nobrow artists, creating a comic/manga collage effect that existed on the CDG site. Basically, it looked rad, and we want to show you.

As he notes, "The album isn’t about the end, it’s really the beginning...". Let's get there.
