We know you've all been waiting with bated breath for Osamu Tezuka Month, and now that we've reached the first week of March, it's time to begin the month of themed posts. We will be starting off with two reviews: one of the first volume of the Phoenix manga (written by Uncle Yo) and one of Helen McCarthy's new art/reference book The Art of Osamu Tezuka (written by me).
In an upcoming giveaway, two lucky Ani-Gamers readers will be receiving a fabulous prize from Vertical, Inc., and depending on how it pans out, there might also be some prizes from other publishers in there. I'm lining up some guest articles from INTERNET SUPERSTARS and planning on at least one Tezuka-themed podcast. Trust me, guys, this is going to be a fun time.
So, without further ado, I hereby declare the beginning of Osamu Tezuka Month! To keep track of the theme month and the articles posted in it, check out our Theme Months page, which contains links to all of the articles that we have posted in the month:
If your need for Tezuka just can't be sated, feel free to go back and read some of our older reviews of his works. Our previous coverage of him has, admittedly, been limited (compared to how much we love his series), which is precisely why we have dedicated a month to the artist.
