Description

A gem from the fifties when the legendary master was most deeply involved in girls' comics, Twin Knights is more than just a sequel to the shojo manga milestone Princess Knight. More close addressing issue of station as well as gender, this one-volume tale has all the antic innocence of the early Tezuka even as it revises the more famous works' premise, doing away with the conceit of "boy and girl hearts" and invoking the vagaies of chance and power in their place.

About Osamu Tezuka

Osamu Tezuka was born on November 3, 1928, in Osaka. Having developed an intense understanding of the preciousness of life from his wartime experience, Osamu Tezuka aimed to become a physician and later earned his degree, but ultimately chose the profession he loved best: manga artist and animated film writer. Tezuka's work changed the concept of the Japanese cartoon, transforming it into an art form and incorporating a variety of new styles in creating the "story cartoon." Osamu Tezuka lived out his entire life tirelessly pursuing his efforts, producing more than 150,000 pages of graphic storytelling before his death in 1989.
