Description - Black Jack by Osamu Tezuka

The Manga legend's series continues. By the creator of Astro Boy and Kimba, The White Lion, it is as important a work in Tezuka's canon as his multiple award-winning Buddha. A rich medical drama that mixes mystery, intrigue, suspense, action and a dash of humour, with a fascinating main character, a notorious scalpel-for-hire who keeps his caring nature a secret, preferring instead to be perceived as a heartless cad. Presented in its original right to left format, columes three and four feature more than 25 exciting stories, translated for the first time.

Author Biography - Osamu Tezuka

Osamu Tezuka (1928-89) is the godfather of Japanese manga comics. He originally intended to become a doctor and earned his degree before turning to what was then a medium for children. His many early masterpieces include the series known in the U.S. as Astro Boy. With his sweeping vision, deftly interwined plots, feel for the workings of power, and indefatigable commitment to human dignity, Tezuka elevated manga to an art form. The later Tezuka, when he authored Buddha, often had in mind the mature readership that manga gained in the sixties and that had only grown ever since. The Kurosawa of Japanese pop culture, Osamu Tezuka is a twentieth century classic.
