More About the Author

Osamu Tezuka (1928-89) is the godfather of Japanese manga comics. He originally intended to become a doctor and earned his degree before turning to what was then a medium for children. His many early masterpieces include the series known in the U.S. as Astro Boy. With his sweeping vision, deftly interwined plots, feel for the workings of power, and indefatigable commitment to human dignity, Tezuka elevated manga to an art form. The later Tezuka, who authored Buddha, often had in mind the mature readership that manga gained in the sixties and that had only grown ever since. The Kurosawa of Japanese pop culture, Osamu Tezuka is a twentieth century classic.

Format: Hardcover
The title notwithstanding, this book is not a compendium of the manga, but a promotional and/or keepsake scrapbook with cover art. What text exists is Japanese. While serious otaku particularly interested in Osamu Tezuka's work might consider purchasing this book (some of the supplemental material is quite good), the casual manga reader will find it disappointing.

3 of 4 people found the following review helpful By Kocha on January 19, 2008
Format: Hardcover
It doesn't say anything in the item description about this BEING a manga, of course. It's an imported artbook (eagle-eyed readers might have guessed this from the size and weight listed on its page), hardcover, that contains a sizable amount of both colour (72 pages!) and b/w manga illustrations, as well as thumbnails of the manga covers from different printings of Black Jack, merchandise photographs, gag sketches, etc...unfortunately some people seem to have bought this thinking it was a set of the manga, and the item description isn't very clear; fortunately Black Jack has been recently licensed for English distribution as of the writing of this review, and the first volume is due out in summer 2008. If you enjoy the series, this artbook is very nice for this price. Highly recommended!
