    DescriptionOsamu Tezuka has often been called "the god of manga" and "the Walt Disney of Japan," but he was far more than that. Tezuka was Walt Disney, Stan Lee, Jack Kirby, Tim Burton, and Carl Sagan all rolled into one incredibly prolific creator, changing the face of Japanese culture forever. Best known for Astro Boy and Kimba the White Lion, Tezuka was instrumental in developing Japanese animation and modern manga comics."" "The Art of Osamu Tezuka "is the first authorized biography celebrating his work and life and featuring over 300 images--many of which have never been seen outside of Japan. With text by respected manga expert Helen McCarthy, "The Art of Osamu Tezuka: ""God of Manga "pays tribute to the work of an artist, writer, animator, doctor, entrepreneur, and traveler whose curious mind spawned dozens of animated films, and over 170,000 pages of comics art in one astonishingly creative lifetime. "The Art of Osamu Tezuka: God of ""Manga "also includes an exclusive 45-minute DVD documentary covering Tezuka's prolific career, from his early manga characters to his later animation work. The package is out of the ordinary as well. It is a hardcover with an onlay and a vinyl jacket.
