Writer and Artist: Osamu Tezuka
Osamu Tezuka (1928-89) is considered by many to be the greatest and most influential of all manga creators. This was not my introduction to his work. I was less impressed by the Black Jack series. I feel Buddha was a much stronger showcase of his talents, as both artist and storyteller.
