The Da Vinci Code's Dan Brown Is Now A Manga Character With Superpowers

brownBungō Stray Dogs is a manga by Kafuka Asagiri about real life writers with supernatural powers that reflet their work. To date it has concentrated on including Japanese authors such as Ryūnosuke Akutagawa, Yukito Ayatsuji and Natsuhiko Kyogoku as well as classic international authors such as Fyodor Dostoyevsky and Agatha Christie as they join an "Armed Detective Agency".

But now they have moved further afield in their recruitment to the decidedly American Dan Brown of The Da Vinci Code and Inferno fame, given the powers of "Inferno", showing a glimpse of hell with every three line poem he writes, that reflects the future in 33 minutes.

Funny that, I know many people who say his prose does the same.
