Praise

2009 Eisner Award Winner

“By far Tezuka’s edgiest work at that point in his career, this series is riveting and, frankly, creepy as hell, with Tezuka’s signature ‘cute’ style offering a welcome counterpoint to the visceral horrors depicted. Highly recommended.” —Publishers Weekly

“The premise and Tezuka’s eerie renditions of larval Hyakkimaru and the monsters that come after him is unusually effective and chilling.” —The Onion A.V. Club

“It’s the pioneer of the manga tradition wading neck deep into the mire of freakish swordsmen, ghouls and historical messiness: Kurosawa and Leone meets Romero… Dororo stands as a classic that showcases Osamu Tezuka’s unique approach to manga and to the world.”—Aint’t It Cool News

“Sleek in design and swift in pacing, the story’s blend of mayhem and laffs and depression creates a uniquely chaotic world… The monster designs are excellent, ranging from detailed etchings to gargantuan masses of doomy scribbles.” —Jog-The Blog
