This amazing 10-volume saga nears its conclusion with this volume that, interestingly, deals, in part, with Gen's efforts to publish an eyewitness account of the bombing. Clearly, the impetus to give voice to this story, which in turn led to the creation of this landmark work, was there from the very beginning. Indeed, the original comic book publication of this tale in the United States (in the early 1970s – making it, we believe, the first US manga publication) was titled, "I Saw It!" A title that conveys a sense of urgency that belies the twenty plus years it took to get the story out. Anyone who has yet to read the first volume of this series, is hereby given a push to do so... today!
