About the Author
Osamu Tezuka was born on November 3rd, 1928, in Osaka. He grew up in a liberal family exposed to manga and Walt Disney. As a boy he also had a love for insects; as a grown-up he would incorporate the ideogram for "insect" into his pen name. Having developed an intense understanding of the preciousness of life from his wartime experience, Osamu Tezuka aimed to become a physician and later earned his license, but ultimately chose the profession he loved best: manga artist and animated film writer.
Reviews
2009 Eisner Award Winner

"By far Tezuka's edgiest work at that point in his career, this series is riveting and, frankly, creepy as hell, with Tezuka's signature 'cute' style offering a welcome counterpoint to the visceral horrors depicted. Highly recommended." --Publishers Weekly

"The premise and Tezuka's eerie renditions of larval Hyakkimaru and the monsters that come after him is unusually effective and chilling." --The Onion A.V. Club

"It's the pioneer of the manga tradition wading neck deep into the mire of freakish swordsmen, ghouls and historical messiness: Kurosawa and Leone meets Romero... Dororo stands as a classic that showcases Osamu Tezuka's unique approach to manga and to the world."--Aint't It Cool News

"Sleek in design and swift in pacing, the story's blend of mayhem and laffs and depression creates a uniquely chaotic world... The monster designs are excellent, ranging from detailed etchings to gargantuan masses of doomy scribbles." --Jog-The Blog
