Brazilian Comic Creator's Tezuka Crossover!

Now this is a totally amazing story!

Comic creator Mauricio de Sousa, known by many as the "Disney of Brazil", was a great friend of Osamu Tezuka. The two had planned to create a film about world peace that would feature characters from both Tezuka's works as well as de Sousa's. Sadly, Tezuka passed away before this could ever happen, but de Sousa always hoped to complete the story in the form of a comic.

That hope will now become a reality, as Tezuka characters including Princess Knight will be joining characters from de Sousa's body of work, including "Monica's Gang", in a new comic that will be published in Portuguese this June, with the potential of a Japanese version as well.
