About The Osamu Tezuka Story
The Osamu Tezuka Story: A Life in Manga and Anime is written by Toshio Ban and Tezuka Productions and translated by Frederik L. Schodt.
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.
