Osamu Tezuka book collection

Osamu Tezuka (1928-1989) is widely regarded as the godfather of Japanese manga comics. He originally wanted to be a doctor and earned his degree before turning to what was then a children’s medium. Among his many early masterpieces was the Astro Boy series, which was popular in the United States. Tezuka elevated manga to an art form with his broad vision, deftly intertwined plots, understanding of power dynamics, and unwavering commitment to human dignity. The later Tezuka, who wrote Buddha, was frequently thinking about the mature readership that manga gained in the 1960s and has only grown since then. Osamu Tezuka, the Kurosawa of Japanese pop culture, is a twentieth-century classic.
