About Black Jack Manga Volume 1

Black Jack volume 1 features story and art by Osamu Tezuka.

Black Jack is a mysterious and charismatic young genius surgeon who travels the world performing amazing and impossible medical feats. Though a trained physician, he refuses to accept a medical license due to his hatred and mistrust of the medical community's hypocrisy and corruption. This leads Black Jack to occasional run-ins with the authorities, as well as from gangsters and criminals who approach him for illegal operations.

Black Jack charges exorbitant fees for his services, the proceeds from which he uses to fund environmental projects and to aid victims of crime and corrupt capitalists. But because Black Jack keeps his true motives secret, his ethics are perceived as questionable and he is considered a selfish, uncaring devil.

Spectacular

by -

Truly a classic of the manga world. Anyone who has even the fleeting-est interest in medicine will find this enjoyable. Even if you don't like medicine, read anyway, if only to see the origins of some manga around today.

I love how the manga feels physically, the cover is super nice to touch! I grew up watching the anime but reading the manga definitely give the nostalgic feeling for me.

A referenced timeless classic

by -

While I did not grow up reading or watching Black Jack, I've seen it referenced enough in other popular titles that it piqued my interest. I went ahead and bought the manga and was not disappointed. The story itself is unique with a medical theme (though I hate to call it out for its inaccuracy as it's a story of fiction).

The product itself is top-notch. The design of the covers and the texture of the book itself is refreshing. The print on the spines are loud yet neutrally colored. I sincerely just enjoy looking at it.
