Osamu Tezuka (1928–89) was the pioneering genius of manga and TV animation in Japan, and Tetsuwan Atomu, or Mighty Atom, known in the United States as Astro Boy, is his life’s masterwork. Tetsuwan Atomu is the enduring story about a cute little android who yearns to be more human. The history of its creation and production—and Tezuka’s role in it—is as much a road map to understanding the development of the twin powerhouse media of manga and anime in the United States, as it is the story of Tezuka’s creativity and dedication. Japan expert Frederik L. Schodt examines Tezuka’s life, the art of animation, the connection between fantasy robots and technology, spin-offs, and Astro Boy’s cultural impact. Includes over 40 black-and-white images and 16 pages of full-color Astro Boy art!
