First published in 1947 it introduced the cinema effect in comics and in doing so it started a new artform. This beautiful facsimile edition comes with an extra book that traces its history and compares it to the 1980 're-draw' version (the original was deemed lost and Tezuka re-draw the manga, from his memory).
