With graphic novels and animation exploding across America like never before, the signal creative and spiritual influence of the late master-storyteller Osamu Tezuka is being recognized worldwide--the skill, range, and emotional power of his storytelling placing him among the giants of graphic fiction and animation. Tezuka's Astro Boy is perhaps the single-most important action/adventure archetype for the 21st century, a timeless all-ages work with its roots in classic comics and cartooning, and its branches reaching into every corner of today's popular entertainment. Few works -- past or present -- pack the excitement, laughs, and warmth of Astro Boy. Translation by Frederik L. Schodt , author of Inside the Robot Kingdom and translator of Barefoot Gen.
