Some of the world s greatest creators have each written and drawn an original story that explores the key moment when a clear-cut split occurs, a mutation, a personal revolt or a large-scale revolution that tips us from one world into another, from one life to an entirely new one: The Tipping Point. From slice-of-life tales and science-fiction adventures, to amusing asides and fantastical fables, witness these major (and minor) changes and evolution through the eyes of these visionaries from the worlds of manga, bande dessinee, and comics."Über den Autor:
Naoki Urasawa's career as a manga artist spans more than twenty years and has firmly established him as one of the true manga masters of Japan.

Well-versed in a variety of genres, Urasawa's oeuvre encompasses a multitude of different subjects, such as a romantic comedy ("Yawara! A Fashionable Judo Girl"), a suspenseful human drama about a former mercenary "Pineapple ARMY"; story by Kazuya Kudo), a captivating psychological suspense story ("Monster"), a sci-fi adventure manga ("20th Century Boys"), and a modern reinterpretation of the work of th"e God of Manga", Osamu Tezuka ("Pluto: Urasawa x Tezuka"; co-authored with Takashi Nagasaki, supervised by Macoto Tezka, and with the cooperation of Tezuka Productions). Many of his books have spawned popular animated and live-action TV programs and films, and 2008 saw the theatrical release of the first of three live-action Japanese films based on "20th Century Boys". No stranger to accolades and awards, Urasawa is a three-time recipient of the prestigious Shogakukan Manga Award, a two-time recipient of the Osamu Tezuka Cultural Prize, and has received the Kodansha Manga Award.

Bob Fingerman is the award-winning creator of such critically acclaimed graphic novels as "Beg the Question", "White Like She", and "Recess Pieces". In his novel "Bottomfeeder", Fingerman tossed away the typical gothic and romantic trappings of the vampire genre in favor of portraying the down-to-earth story of a working class Queens-bred vampire. In "Recess Pieces", Fingerman whipped up a bloody maelstrom of adorable moppets and the living dead set within the confines of a school. In the uneasy romantic roman a clef "Beg the Question" he presented anxious young love in the streets of Brooklyn long before gentrification. His graphic novel "From the Ashes "is a "speculative memoir" set in the post-apocalyptic ruins of New York City. He has a short story in the zombie anthology "The Living Dead 2". He lives in New York City with his wife, Michele.
