    One thought on “Astro Boy Omnibus Volume 1”

    1. I really enjoyed this. I've only read Tezuka's Buddha before this and like that as well. In my opinion, Astro Boy is possibly the most iconic character to come from Japanese anime/manga. When you read these stories you can see way too. I mean he is a cute and likable character, but at the same time you can see that Tezuka loves to tell stories.There is a lot seriousness with humor as well. Most of the chapters stat with Tezuka breaking the fourth wall tell readers history about Astro Boy and als [...]

    2. Astro Boy - the first manga to be adapted for animation many years ago - is pure, joyous fun. Not only are these stories entertaining, they also contain underlying issues of depth. Tezuka's artwork is absolutely brilliant in its execution with a very approachable style. If you've never read manga before, have no fear - you'll enjoy this. The second omnibus from Dark Horse will be out in December 2015.

    3. Such nostalgia! I used to watch the I think 80's version of the cartoon when I was little, it was so great and apparently quite accurate to the source material at least insofar as I can remember. It's only a shame this book isn't in colour or even partly coloured, but it still has the great art and dialogue!

    4. I love Astro Boy. This book does feel a little dated but that not a big deal. The point is the spirit of the stories. They present to the reader a character who might always wins but he always tries. That spirit is summed up in a single phrase that go, go, go Astro Boy.

    5. REVIEW WIPActual Rating: 3.5 StarsI read this manga because I watched and enjoyed the 2003 reboot of the anime (in English, because the Japanese dub is nearly impossible to find here in the States), but wanted to get the full, undiluted, original experience. Oddly enough, instead of getting said full, undiluted experience, I felt like I was looking at the graphic novel equivalent of an impressive, if uncut and unpolished, stone; full of magnificent potential, but unrefined. I kept comparing this [...]

    6. This is definitely not just a classic because it was essentially the property that brought Manga to the United States it's very good in it's own right. The theme of 'Robot Rights' is very prevalent early on, but it feels more speculative (How SHOULD we handle Robots?) than allegorical (like X-Men) not knowing what impact the American Civil Rights movement had in Japan, I have no idea if that's intentional, or just my takeThe stories are in some cases a little basic, but all well plotted the stre [...]
