Overview

The Black Jack series is told in short stories.  Volume 10 will contain 14 stories, each running approximately 20 pages in length.  This tenth volume includes the following stories:

The Most Beautiful Woman in the World-- Given Black Jack's profession it is not unusual for the unlicensed surgeon to get requests for house calls at least opportune times of night.  While his prices are negotiable he is always on-call, ready to provide services twenty-four hours a day and seven days a week.  But on this particular night, it is not Black Jack who is called for his services.  This time the person on the phone is calling for someone named Kuroo, and instead of calling in a panic, this caller wants to have some chit-chat before detailing where Kuroo's services will be needed. 

Blood Relations--After his last tirp to Macau Black Jack was not looking forward to returning to the Portugese colony.  Unfortunately he receives another call from the penninsula, but this time from his step-mother.

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.
