PLUTO Wins Comics Award in France

The epic revisioning of Osamu Tezuka's Astro Boy universe by Naoki Urasawa has once again been honored with another award

The PLUTO manga won the the Intergenerational Award at the Angoulême International Comics Festival in France this weekend. This is one of the biggest comics events in the entire world, and France has a huge comic book culture.

The Intergenerational Award is a recently created honor, and it seems appropriate to give such an honor to Pluto, as it is the product of 2 generations of manga artists.
