About this product
- DescriptionKwn as the Walt Disney of Japan it is surprise that Tezuka Osamu is still the best-kwn manga creator to Western fans. Current scholarship has uncovered the profound complexity and ambiguity t only of his work but of the man, the artist, and his life dismantling his position as the god of manga.Contributors to this volume of Mechademia a series devoted to creative and critical work on anime, manga, and the fan arts analyze Tezuka and his complicated approaches toward life and nlife on earth, as well as his effect on the lives of other manga artists. Using essays and reprints of Japanese manga on Tezuka, this book questions his influence and attitudes toward the nhuman, evolutionary theory, the aesthetic lineage of contemporary manga, incipient feminism in the reinscription of the nhuman feminine, the sexual politics of manga bodies, the origins of the moe culture, and the styles of didacticism revealing the digressions of insects and classical modes, among others.The authors offer varying perspectives on the historical transformations in production, distribution, and reception that gradually integrated and differentiated an overlapping series of markets and readerships in the postwar era. Divided into four sections that explore different lives Nonhuman Life, Media Life, A Life in Manga, and Everyday Life Mechademia 8 serves as a prehistory of the impersonal politics of the present while tracing Tezuka s legacy.Contributors: Akatsuka Fujio; An Moyoko; Linda H.
