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.

Most Helpful Customer Reviews

2 of 3 people found the following review helpful By J. Thomason on November 12, 2003
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book is very enjoyable to read. It is by far the best of Tezuka's sci-fi trilogy (Lost World, Metropolis, Next World). The characters are the same as his other works (Mr. Mustachio, Rock, and the rest).
The story takes place in the future and appears to be a commentary on atomic war. The nations of the world are at war, and radiation from bombs have caused weird mutations on Horseshoe island. Scientists are in disagreement. People get kidnapped. And there is plotting and trechery.
The art style is like Astro Boy, Betty Boop, and Popeye, but it was made back in that era so it would be.
