I love the illusion Nagai created on this page by linking the shapes between panels. This is how you do widescreen.

Finished Asura’s Wrath. Great multimedia whatever-it-is ,but I mainly wanted to point out how fucking fantastic the animation is. It’s full of dynamic camera angles and movement, the timing is EXCELLENT and it uses the same extreme distortion techniques as traditional animation. It is seriously some top-tier CGI and I feel like all those anime studios doing shitty 3D stuff need to take note. 
The art direction is also top-notch and creative with its Ishikawa-esque blend of Buddhism and science fiction and a bunch of cool other things that have already been summarized pretty well here.

Skull Killer Jakio (スカルキラー邪鬼王) by Ken Ishikawa. As far as I can tell this is the first instance of the bio/living mecha concept.

So I just beat the first episode of Asura’s Wrath and… wow.

this is basically Ken Ishikawa: the video game, isn’t it?

I hate widescreen panels so much. 
I wish people would realise that the way to capture the cinematic power of film through comic books is not to just stretch out the panels so they look like movie screens.
