About the Author
Osamu Tezuka (1928 - 1989) was a Japanese manga artist, cartoonist, and animator. His prolific output, pioneering techniques, and innovations in genre storytelling earned him such titles as "the Father of Manga," "the Godfather of Manga," and "the God of Manga."
Reviews
"One Hundred Tales" cements why the "godfather of manga" was such a beloved creator and influence to so many." - Asian Movie Pulse
"Osamu Tezuka's One Hundred Tales is a masterful rendition of the old Faust tale, done only in the trademark way in which Tezuka is capable. It's equal parts funny and sad, and it leaves us with an ending that is both uplifting a wistful. Tezuka's masterful storytelling breathes a different life into an old tale, and it was wonderful to be able to finally read it. Highly recommended." - Fandom Post
"Tezuka spins a supernatural yarn with One Hundred Tales. Manga today wouldn't be what it is without Tezuka, so it's always nice to see more of his work translated." --OTAKU USA
"Laundering the most macabre fable of faithless ruin into a parable of romantic fulfillment - not a bad trick. For anyone else this would stand as a defining masterpiece, for Tezuka this was four months in 1971. Another chip off the endless mountain. My goodness, but this Tezuka fellow certainly knew a few things!" --THE COMICS JOURNAL
"Throughout the book, the work has a certain warmth; Tezuka comes across as a good friend who knows how to comfort, entertain, and make merry. It is quite a peculiar feeling that goes beyond wholesomeness with such comfortable familiarity in how Tezuka captivates his audience." - Asian Movie Pulse
"A beautifully illustrated, one-of-a-kind period story about sacrifices and second chances, showcasing Tezuka's classic style and sense of humor. Inspired by Faust, this fable reinterprets the events into a lively and humorous tale, weaving in Japanese culture and history for a unique twist. While some references may be lost on younger readers, long-time fans will appreciate Tezuka's recognizable art style, random cameos, and nods to pop culture icons. The English release of One Hundred Tales from Osamu Tezuka and Ablaze Manga is a must-read for manga fans." --Screenrant
