URASAWA Preeminent manga artist Naoki Urasawa, collaborating with editor, producer and manga writer Takashi Nagasaki, creates a daring revisionist take on Osamu Tezuka's timeless classic Astro Boy. Conceived under the auspices of Tezuka's son Macoto Tezka, a visual artist in his own right, Pluto: Urasawa x Tezuka is more than just an homage piece - Urasawa takes Tezuka's masterwork and transforms it into a new groundbreaking series of his own. Pluto: Urasawa x Tezuka will surely delight loyal Tezuka fans, but it will also capture the imagination of anyone who loves a compelling work of great science fiction. x TEZUKA The legendary Osamu Tezuka is arguably the most influential person to shape the landscape of the narrative art form known as manga. In 1964, Tezuka created a revolutionary story arc in his Astro Boy series called The Greatest Robot on Earth. Tezuka's engaging tale struck a chord with the children of that time to become the most popular story line of the series. It would also prove to profoundly influence and inspire a generation of manga artists to come.
