Osamu Tezuka truly is the god of manga. The attention to detail is simply staggering, and he produced his hundreds of thousands of pages of manga over the decades the long, hard way. Sometimes, when reading his work, one simply must stop and marvel at the art, even during the most engrossing of tales.

By all appearances, Osamu Tezuka worked himself into an early grave. His last recorded words were a plea to a nurse, who attempted to take his pen, to let him work. Even so, he left behind a significant body of unfinished material, and it's tempting to suggest that he should have paced himself a little more, and that to do so would've made for a happier life. But there is at least one particular reason why he had to rush: he was elevating his medium. He and some of his contemporaries saved manga from being restricted to the narrow subject matter and audience ranges that ...
