This graphic-format biography of Osamu Tezuka--Japan's "God of Manga"--looks at one of the twentieth century's great creative artists (Astro Boy, Kimba the White Lion, Black Jack). It is also an anecdotal study of the evolution of Japan's early manga and anime business and its heroes. A never-before-seen popular culture history of postwar Japan, it is sure to fascinate fans and anyone interested in manga, anime, and the potential of the graphic storytelling medium.

TEZUKA SAMA AAAAAAAAAAAA. Had to get that out of the way first lol.

Tezuka Osamu monogatari is a biography of the man known to the world as the god of manga and godfather of anime. Released as a weekly of 8-10 pages by Toshio Ban, then sub-chief of Tezuka productions, it ran for nearly 3 years. What better way to show the life of a great but in the medium which he helped grow and popularise. Tezuka was always a believer in the power of manga to transform life and would have been moved by the fact that his biography was presented in this format. read more
