The Astro Boy Essays in Otaku USA

The December 2007 issue of Otaku USA features a two-page review of The Astro Boy Essays by Frederik L. Schodt. Invoking the full-color, classic Astro Boy images in the book, the review includes some wonderful full-color illustrations. Daryl Surat writes:

[Schodt] is perhaps the top English-language authority on the subject of the "God of Manga and Anime." Not only is [The Astro Boy Essays] an excellent resource on Astro Boy, also serves as a biography on the life of Osamu Tezuka and a historical overview of the development of modern Japanese animation and comics.

Remember to RSVP for the special AUTHOR TALK AND BOOK SIGNING with Schodt at the Japan Society of Northern California on November 14th!
