7 Down, 45 To Go "Black Jack, Volume 3" (52 Books, 52 Weeks)

If you have been following the 52 Books, 52 Weeks series over the years, you know of my increasing fascination with the "father of anime," Osamu Tezuka. In the past couple of years I have devoured his eight-volume Buddha series, a couple of his collected Dororo volumes, and now the third book in the collected Black Jack series.

Black Jack, Volume 3 shows Tezuka adding depth to his outlaw surgeon's character. Lambasted by the law, the medical community, and much of the populace for his mercenary (and unlicensed) surgeries, this collection of 14 stories often shows the compassionate side of the doctor. At his best, Tezuka creates larger than life mythologies filled with puns and huge swings of emotion, and I am excited to see where this series leads.

For one month, enter the coupon code "LHB001" at Atomic Books and receive 15% off this title.

My next book is The Stuff Of Life: A Graphic Guide To Genetics And DNA , by Osamu Tezuka.
