The civil war continues ruthlessly as the two sides fight each other and themselves. Lives are wasted and madness reigns as both sides seek the Phoenix and its immortality-granting blood. Its failure to do anything for anybody does not stop the search. Friends become foes again and again and again as all are consumed by the age.

And the Phoenix watches as the doomed play and replay their parts endlessly.

One more grandiose and touching tale by Ozamu Tezuka. One more that ends sadly for everybody.

And the Phoenix watches it all.

This is not a review of the actual comic, which I'm sure is great, but of the kindle edition. The pages are arranged right to left, despite the fact that this comic is meant to be read left to right causing any two page spreads to display in the wrong order making them unreadable. I made a complaint to amazon, and was informed that they would look into this problem, and make this product unpurchasable in the meantime. This was several month ago, and yet the problem persists. I'm beginning to doubt that is will ever be fixed.

Not one of Tezuka's best works. This is a two volume piece, that for me just got drawn out. I have read all of the phoenix volumes (published) these two civil war volumes so far have been the most uneventful. Right now i am reading ode to Kirihito, a longer medical thriller by Tezuka, quite interesting, a different beat for Tezuka. All in all the pheonix saga is great, buddha series is great, does this guy create anything that is not great? Dont forget Tezuka was putting this stuff out 30 and 40 years ago. From a distant planet I think so.
