Intron Depot 8 Bomb Bay Art Book Review

Bomb Bay is the eighth in the series of Intron Depot illustration art books by famed manga artist Shirow Masamune, creator of Ghost In The Shell. None of the art books in the series can best the first and original Intron Depot, in part due to Shirow’s unfortunate descent into garish digital and CG techniques. This particular volume collects misc art work created between 1992 and 2009, and most of it is fluff except for the fantastic “old school Shirow” illustrations from his manga ( and subse...
