Synopsis

Pluto: Urasawa x Tezuka, Vol. 4 by Naoki Urasawa

In a distant future where sentient humanoid robots pass for human, someone or some thing is out to destroy the seven great robots of the world. A powerful, destructive force in the form of a tornado is killing the great robots of the world one by one. Who or what could be behind this whirlwind? Be it man or robot, it now has its sights set on Atom, the most advanced robot ever created--and Atom is ready to dive right into the eye of the storm.

About the Author

URASAWA Preeminent manga artist Naoki Urasawa, collaborating with editor, producer and manga writer Takashi Nagasaki, creates a daring revisionist take on Osamu Tezuka's timeless classic Astro Boy. Conceived under the auspices of Tezuka's son Macoto Tezka, a visual artist in his own right, Pluto: Urasawa x Tezuka is more than just an homage piece - Urasawa takes Tezuka's masterwork and transforms it into a new groundbreaking series of his own. Pluto: Urasawa x Tezuka will surely delight loyal Tezuka fans, but it will also capture the imagination of anyone who loves a compelling work of great science fiction. x TEZUKA The legendary Osamu Tezuka is arguably the most influential person to shape the landscape of the narrative art form known as manga. In 1964, Tezuka created a revolutionary story arc in his Astro Boy series called The Greatest Robot on Earth. Tezuka's engaging tale struck a chord with the children of that time to become the most popular story line of the series. It would also prove to profoundly influence and inspire a generation of manga artists to come.
