Description

In a chilling depiction of evil, the godfather of Japanese manga explores the darker side of man through religion, sadism and bestiality from the perspective of a twisted man who is bent on destroying the world. Steering clear of the humour and design that enliven many of Tezuka's better known works, MW explores a dark modern reality where neither divine nor secular justice seems to prevail. This wilfully 'anti-Tezuka' achievement from the master's own pen is as bracing today as it was 30 years ago and is a must-have for any fan.

Author Biography

Osamu Tezuka ( 1928-89) is the godfather of Japanese manga comics. He originally intended to become a doctor and earned his degree before turning to what was still then considered a frivolous medium. His man early masterpieces include the series known in the U.S. a Astro Boy. With his sweeping vision, deftly intertwined plots, and indefatigable commitment to human dignity, Tezuka elevated manga to an art form. Other works available from Vertical include Apollo's Song, Ode to Kirihito and the eight-volume epic Buddha, winner of the Eisner and Harvey awards.
