Overview


Phoenix: Early Works
contains stories serialized from 1954 to 1957. This volume contains an early version of the story Dawn, as well as a chapter on ancient Egypt, Greece and Rome.

The stories collected here showcase an earlier phase of Tezuka's art and storytelling—and expose a more youthful, sweet side of the master creator. They also illustrate the link between early manga and American comics and cartoons, and reveal Tezuka's deep fascination with Walt Disney. The work was originally geared toward a younger audience than the Phoenix sagas, which began in the 1960s.

Meet the Author

Regarded by many as the "God of Manga" Osamu Tezuka was born in 1928 in Toyonoka, in Osaka, Japan. A prolific author and artist, Tezuka is generally regarded as the single figure responsible for developing Japan's massive manga and anime industries. His cinematic art style and novelistic narratives have made his work as universally accessible and relevant now as when first published in Japan. A list of his well-known and universally loved work includes the classic JUNGLE EMPEROR LEO (also known as Kimba the White Lion), BLACK JACK, ADOLF, MIGHTY ATOM (known as ASTRO BOY in the U.S.) and METROPOLIS (recently made into a hit anime film). Tezuka continued creating comics until his death in 1989.
