About the Author
Tezuka's manga and animated films had a tremendous impact on the shaping of the psychology of Japan's postwar youth. His work changed the concept of Japanese comics, 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, passing away at the age of 60 on February 8, 1989.
In all, Tezuka produced more than 150,000 pages of graphic storytelling before his death.
Praise For Apollo's Song, Part 2…
“The paradox is that what’s essentially the same story, filtered through various historic and fantastic milieus, not only holds our interest but also sparks a satisfaction deeper than the sum of its episodes. We know what’s going to happen, but Tezuka’s shamelessly entertaining storytelling and versatile art make repetition a giddy and even profound pleasure.”—The Los Angeles Times
“Apollo’s Song deserves the close reading of a literary novel and will reward those who do so.”
