The Exhibition “The Power of Manga: Osamu Tezuka and Shotaro Ishinomori” starts on June 29, 2013, at Museum of Contemporary Art Tokyo.
The exhibition “The Power of Manga: Osamu Tezuka and Shotaro Ishinomori” aims to explore the origin of ‘The Power of Manga’ through tracking these two artists’ history, messages embedded in their works and original manuscripts and films of their major works such as “Astro Boy”, “Black Jack”, and “Cyborg 009”. The exhibition also has some homage created by notable figures.
In addition, the highlight of the exhibition includes Osamu Tezuka’s unpublished manuscripts discovered recently as well as a reproduction of Tokiwa Apartment many manga artists then lived in.
Please come and experience the power of Manga by yourself.
