Since starting Largehearted Boy over seven years ago, I have rekindled my love for comics. One of the most fascinating series I have read is Osamu Tezuka's Buddha collection, where he blends the mythology of Buddhism with a fast-paced and action-filled narrative. Tezuka is often called the father of anime, and his comics are filled with surprising warmth and clever asides.
To enter the contest, leave a comment in this post and name your favorite cartoon character (from television, comics, or graphic novels).
The winner will receive Osamu Tezuka's complete 8-volume Buddha graphic novel series, along with some other book and music surprises:
Buddha Volume 1, by Osamu Tezuka
Buddha Volume 2, by Osamu Tezuka
Buddha Volume 3, by Osamu Tezuka
Buddha Volume 4, by Osamu Tezuka
Buddha Volume 5, by Osamu Tezuka
Buddha Volume 6, by Osamu Tezuka
Buddha Volume 7, by Osamu Tezuka
Buddha Volume 8, by Osamu Tezuka
The winner will be chosen randomly at midnight CT Friday evening (June 5th).
My wife's health blog, Fingertips, is also giving away two Osama Tezuka graphic novels this week from the cartoonist's Black Jack series.
