Von Parka TOP 500 REZENSENT
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
Länge: 0:27 Minuten
It comes with cardboard onlay of Astro Boy pasted on top the hardcover, a 45 minute documentary DVD and a soft transparent vinyl dust jacket. There are two publishers for the book, Ilex and Abrams ComicArt, with Ilex distributing for the UK market.

The author Helen McCarthy has compiled a rather in depth biography of Osamu Tezuka. The content is presented chronologically detailing the different characters, book titles and animation he has created. Over his career, he has created a staggering amount of over 170,000 pages of comic in over 700 titles. He's a prolific artist at the start who became even more so after using comic assistants, a system currently used today to create comics and animation.

In addition to the manga and anime art, there are also a lot of great photos of Osamu Tezuka, even from when he was a kid born in 1928, thanks to his father who's a photographer. The biography looks at his life of creating comics from when he was a kid, to studying medicine and to the post war period when he rose to fame with the numerous creation to his name.

Since he created so many titles, the book only list his key works and characters. But even so, there are quite a lot ranging from his 4-panel strips to Black Jack and later on animation titles. It's interesting to find out that many characters he created actually cross over to other titles making cameo appearances, sometimes even including Osamu Tezuka himself. Many themes in his comics are from his philosophy and influences from life.

On the DVD, the documentary shows us how he works when camera men are allowed, for the first time, into his personal studio. There's a section showing him rushing for a publication deadline while chasing a flight overseas at the same time.

Dieses amerikanische Buch über Osamu Tezuka(1928-1989)-God Of Manga von Helen McCarthy erschien 2009 in zwei Versionen,mit(erkennbar an dem runden Aufkleber) und ohne DVD. Das über 270 Seiten starke Buch im dicken Pappeinband mit zusätzlicher abwaschbarer Folie und fett aufgeklebtem Astro Boy ist mehr eine hervorragende Biografie über Tezukas Leben und Werk als ein Artbook; in diesem Aspekt ist der Titel etwas irreführend. Denn auch wenn Tezuka je nach Quellenangaben eigenhändig zwischen 140.000 und 170.000 Seiten Manga schuf,so gibt es natürlich nur eine geringe Anzahl Farbarbeiten,auf denen er mit der Intention Seiten schuf,zu zeigen,was er wirklich drauf hatte. Er persönlich hielt sich selbst auch für keinen besonders guten Zeichner,aber das war wohl eher Understatement,denn immerhin war er trotz immensen Outputs niemals ein Seitenschinder,von denen es viele gibt. Das Buch ist immerhin so gut wie komplett in Farbe gehalten,obwohl der Großteil seines Werkes s/w war. Es stellt sein Leben vor und bietet einen ziemlich guten Überblick über sein Werk,natürlich wahrscheinlich nicht gänzlich lückenlos,aber immerhin so gut wie.
Der Knaller der Edition ist jedoch die genau 45 Minuten lange DVD-Dokumentation des Buches,die 1985 oder 1986 entstanden sein muß. Sie zeigt Osamu Tezuka in einem unscheinbaren Appartement,das ihm 5 Tage der Woche lang als Zeichenraum diente,und dessen Betreten so gut wie jedem verboten war. Hier brütete er alleine über seinen Comics,und obwohl er über ein Studio mit 30 Mitarbeitern verfügte,zeichnete und tuschte er jeden Strich seiner Comicseiten komplett selbst.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Well researched biography of Osamu Tezuka's life and work 9. Oktober 2009

Format:Gebundene Ausgabe

On the DVD, the documentary shows us how he works when camera men are allowed, for the first time, into his personal studio. There's a section showing him rushing for a publication deadline while chasing a flight overseas at the same time. He was drawing on the car, with his editor holding a watch, constantly informing him of the time left. There's a shot of his assistant smiling which I interpret it to be, "That's how he is all the time, drawing." He finished the rest of the pages on the plane and met the deadline by faxing them over.

Osamu Tezuka is really in love with his work, blurring the line between dedication and addiction. His last words when he died in 1989, at the age of 60, were, "I'm begging you, let me work."

This book is really well put together and comes with a great video documentary as well. It's recommended to all fans of Osamu Tezuka.

5.0 von 5 Sternen It's hard to imagine a more visually comprehensive and well-researched volume ever appearing in English again 6. Juli 2010
Von GraphicNovelReporter.com - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
Let's just suppose, for the sake of argument, that you wanted to persuade the skeptical of the artistic merit of either manga or anime. There are plenty of accomplished series in both media you could introduce them to, perhaps pointing out the compelling themes and striking imagery in a helpful, over-the-shoulder kind of way. But here's another option: You could simply have them flip through the pages of Helen McCarthy's The Art of Osamu Tezuka for 10 or 15 seconds. If they still don't get it, chances are they're operating under a different conception of what constitutes art in the first place.

Those of a certain age might recall the splash that Christopher Finch's The Art of Walt Disney made back when it first appeared in the 1970s. Here was a comprehensive volume bursting not only with rich colors and impeccable design, but that gathered a wealth of material that otherwise was difficult to access. Moreover, Finch's book hit readers like a cultural ton of bricks: You could really see, firsthand, the impact that Disney had on imagination itself. Well, The Art of Osamu Tezuka does the same thing--times 10. And the nice thing is that it's lacking the hagiographical elements of The Art of Walt Disney--McCarthy's measured prose clearly reflects an admiration for its subject, but it never strays into fannish idolatry.

At risk of wearing out this analogy's welcome, I should point out that this book, unlike Finch's, actually showcases the art of, well, you know, the subject himself, not his production teams or staff animators. Indeed, the argument might be advanced that while Disney and Tezuka's status as pop-culture titans are frequently equated, Disney was a businessman with an artistic sensibility--and Tezuka was the opposite. Certainly this handsome coffee table book proves the point repeatedly. In terms of his manga work, it reaffirms Tezuka's status as a visual genius on par with someone like Will Eisner on at least three levels--as pioneer, draftsman, and storyteller. But in its additional tracing of Tezuka's work in animation, you have to add comparisons to the Fleischer brothers, Chuck Jones, and a host of others as well. In short, every library and school art department should own a copy of this book if for no other reason than to inspire young artists.

Of course one of the most enduring aspects of Tezuka's achievements, and one that's clearly evident here, is the way that they could shift between adult and child audiences without missing a beat, producing classic characters and narratives for both. When Tezuka tried to change horses midstream is when he could run into trouble, as McCarthy is quick to note in terms of how the attempt to make Astro Boy darker or more conflicted turned off many fans. But when one observes the full tonal spectrum of the individual works on display in this book, a spectrum that encompasses the cuteness of Kimba the White Lion and the homicidal madness of M/W, Tezuka's emotional range can't help but astound. In fact, even if you peruse McCarthy's book without prior knowledge of the God of Manga's work, you'd still be left with the sense that his was an authentic and holistic humanism because he was never afraid to embrace the polar opposites that are contained in each of us. As a result, Tezuka's artistic sensibility remains a forceful argument for why there can't be light without darkness, and vice versa.

Aside from its thematic and generic diversity, Tezuka's output was also extraordinary in terms of its sheer volume. Surely it's a daunting task whenever an author must distill decades of accomplishments into a single overview, but McCarthy's achievement in compilation is nothing short of mind-blowing. As she points out, over his lifetime Tezuka produced some "170,000 pages of comic art in around 700 different titles." And remember, that's just manga. The fact that McCarthy also culled the best of his animation cels, posters, illustration, juvenilia, and other forms of artwork is just one more reason that it's hard to imagine a more visually comprehensive and well-researched volume ever appearing in English again.

How did Tezuka manage to be so singularly prolific? That question is tackled in the eye-opening DVD that is included with The Art of Osamu Tezuka. A large part of it is dedicated to footage shot by a Japanese documentary crew that was able to gain access to his carefully guarded, isolation chamber-like personal studio. Or maybe "gain access" is not the right way to put it: Tezuka only allowed living and breathing people to enter the space insofar as they were installing cameras and mirrors (to capture him from different angles). The result is a staggering portrait of personal discipline, as Tezuka is captured working on multiple projects with barely a moment's interruption. You almost want to laugh out loud when his wife finally appears--her role at their home more like than of a proprietor at a favorite inn that he occasionally visits.

Finally, where most critical biographies end at the subject's death followed by a brief, inevitably upbeat wrap-up, The Art of Osamu Tezuka continues at length, gauging the artist's influence not just in imaginative literature, but in fields such as robotics and medicine. In addition, it even features a section on criticisms of Tezuka and his legacy. Somehow, though, that seems just like how he would have wanted this book to conclude--by adding the requisite darkness to go along with all the blindingly bright light that precedes it.

4.0 von 5 Sternen A good book, but more translation would have been appreciated 10. Januar 2010
Von Laughing Dragon - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
I bought this book after seeing the excellent Astro Boy movie, and I have to say that it's worth every dollar. It's exhaustively researched and richly illustrated, and gives a reader curious about the life and work of Japan's "God of Manga", Osamu Tezuka, plenty to chew on. My only caveat is that the comics included in the book are often untranslated, even the ones pertaining to Astro Boy, and that was bit disappointing. But that's a small quibble; overall I really enjoyed this book.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Stealing Tezuka 13. Dezember 2012
Von Grant - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
Amazon had this book on sale for $2.66! An amazing steal! A friend told me about the sale and while I have never been into Manga and don't really know much at all about Osamu Tezuka, I figured for two dollars and sixty six cents, I could afford to learn. It's a lovely book with a heavy duty clear plastic protective cover. The book's contents are also interesting. Focusing on Tezuka's childhood and then moving on to his early work with things like Kimba and then to his more contemporary work with plenty of art and photos befitting a coffe table art book of this sort. I was surprised to find that the book comes with a DVD documentary on Tezuka. It's a fascinating look at his artistic process, how he holds up in a small apartment tenemant in a room with an old record player(on which he plays different records depending on what style of manga he's drawing) and a small television set. No one is allowed to come into his workspace but he allowed remote cameras to be set up to watch him in action. Even though I'm only two thirds of the way finished with the book, I have to say that I am really enjoying it. I can't say I would have been motivated to buy this book had it not been on sale at such a crazy low price. Not knowing anything about Tezuka, I also can't speak to whether or not the author gets is right although it seems like a well written and researched book. However, I can say that this is a quality book and definitely worth the regular asking price of 20 to 30 dollars.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Colorful Insight into the Life of Tesuka 30. Dezember 2011
Von Ganapathy Subramaniam - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
Comics, Animation, Cartoons have certain "pockets" of influence. We have Russian, Franco-Belgian, American, British and Japanese.

Japanese animation had great cross cultural influence between other schools, particularly American. Each influenced the other and inspired the other. Japanese animation has a charm like none other.

Tezuka, was a talented artist, whose prolific output in for of graphic novels and Anime, changed the face of Japanese animation.

This book does great justice to the master, its a really really large format book, with a hard bound cover, and a relief cut image of Astro Boy, encased in a plastic dust jacket.

The book walks us through the life of Tesuka, as it happened, through numerous photographs, including from childhood, early drawings, manuscripts, book covers, posters etc from several of his works.

Largely known for his influential character of Astro Boy and the monumental 8 volume work on Buddha, Tezuka's work spans a large range of genre, adventure for kids, science fiction, Spirituality, and later on to experimental subjects. One can learn about his deep love for drawing, his relentless working, and massive creative output.

This is a great study of his life and works, and for someone interested in understanding and appreciating his works, this forms a solid framework and reference.

Towards the end of the book, one can get glimpses of the unfinished works that he was working on during the later parts of his life. Also the photographs and details about the Tezuka Manga Museum is fascinating.

The book also comes with a disc containing interesting documentary information.

Anyone interested in Comics, Animation, Manga, Anime would love this book, and at this steeply discounted price, is there a reason not to get it?!.
