Anime News Network brings word of the manga up for recognition in the form of the Tezuka Osamu Cultural Prize this year. This is a prestigious award given to exceptional and creative works in the field of Japanese comics, and is, of course, named after the God of Manga and AstroBoy creator Osamu Tezuka.

Check out the full list of nominees here. Some of these, like Yotsuba&! (pictured), are available to English-speaking fans, and others may be available in the future, so if you are a fan of the Tezuka approach to manga, or just like reading great comics, keep your eye on these titles.
