Black Jack Manga Preview


My absolute favorite of all of Tezuka's characters is finally getting an English language manga release in its entirety from Vertical Publishing. The first 300 page volume will be released next month. Subsequent volumes will be released bi-monthly.

To kick things off, Vertical has now unveiled a Black Jack section of their website, complete with a free 20 page preview that you can read, featuring a classic and incredibly moving story about a killer whale. Reading this manga is an experience like no other, and everyone has got to check it out. I'll be looking forward to picking up the first volume, and every single one after that!
