Summary

In the wake of the widespread critical acclaim for the Metropolis animated feature, interest in the work of master storyteller and cartoonist Osamu Tezuka, creator of Metropolis and the godfather of Japanese comics and animation, has never been greater. Astro Boy is Tezuka's most beloved body of work, a visionary series that laid the groundwork for the international phenomenon that are the comics and animation industries of Japan. Innovative, exciting, and as fresh today as when it first appeared nearly half a century ago, Astro Boy is timeless graphic fiction for readers of all ages. Translation by Frederik L. Schodt, author of America and the Four Japans and translator of Masamune Shirow's Orion. "One explanation for the popularity of comics in Japan is that Japan had Osamu Tezuka, whereas others did not."–Japan's Asahi Newspaper (quoted in Wizard Magazine) "I'm digging Astro Boy enough to buy these collections myself. Consider them recommended."–Comics Buyers' Guide
