Osamu Tezuka is a giant in the history of Japanese manga (comics), and is responsible for the development of the “story manga” (the predominant form in Japanese comics) and many of the characteristic stylistic features of Japanese comics. This chapter discusses and presents story plots, character sketches, and 19 illustrations from one of Tezuka’s major works, the 3,000-page Budda. MacWilliams shows how Tezuka made the story of the Buddha relevant and interesting to a young, modern audience, and introduces other innovations by the manga artist known as the “god” of Japanese comics.
