47 Down, 5 To Go "Black Jack, Volume 1" (52 Books, 52 Weeks)

I have fallen in love with the work of the "father of anime," Osamu Tezuka. His comics are clever, funny, and well-paced, and his latest series to be translated to English, Black Jack, is no exception.

In this book, Tezuka has created the world's greatest surgeon, a tormented rebel not licensed by the medical world. Black Jack swoops in when there is no other hope, and along the way makes the corrupt pay for their misdeeds. The surgeon's own troubled life adds weight to the stories.

My next book is The Burma Chronicles, by Guy Deslisle.
