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.

    Expected a lot- and Got it.

    I have read everything by tezuka that's available in English. His Early work appeals more to younger readers. For Adults, The Buddha and Adolf Series are terrific but the Phoenix Saga is unbelievably, consistently outstanding. This latest installment, volume 7, is no exception. I wouldn't have thought it possible, but Tezuka's artwork seems to be even more beautiful than in previous volumes. Thankfully, he produced so much work over the course of his life. Now, the English-speaking world can enjoy it and, for Tezuka fans, each new release might as well be brand new. Volume 8 (part two of the storyline that begins in Volume 7) can't come out soon enough for me. Waiting for each new Tezuka book to come out, I feel like a little kid, counting off the days until Christmas. There is another work due to come out this year besides Phoenix, Volume 8. The title slips my mind at the moment, but it will be by far the largest single-volume work by Tezuka to be published in English. I can't wait!
