Product Details


"Infused with humor and history, the epic of Siddhartha is perhaps Osamu Tezuka’s crowning acheivement and illustrates why, without irony, Tezuka is referred to as ‘The King of Japanese Comics’." – LA Weekly"Buddha is one of Tezuka’s true masterpieces. We’re lucky to have this excellent new edition in English." – Scott McCloud, author of Understanding Comics"In handsome volumes designed by Chip Kidd, the Vertical books present Tezuka at his best." – National Post

"Buddha is an engrossing tale. The armchair philosopher, the devout Buddhist, the casual manga fan – this book satisfies all with its tale of humanism through sequential art, and definitely earns its place on a bibliophile’s bookshelf." –Anime Insider"This is one of the greatest acheivements of the comics medium, a masterpiece by one of the greats." –"In Tezuka’s world, the exquisite collapses into the goofy in a New York minute, the goofy into the melodramatic, the melodramatic into the brutal, and the brutal into the sincerely touching. The suprising result is a work wholly unique and downright fun." –Time Out NY"Tezuka’s Buddha is a striking and memorable confluence of ancient wisdom and contemporary popular art." –Yoga Journal
