from "Black Jack"
Apparently, one of Tezuka Osamu's childhood friends had a dent in the back of his head that looked like you could stand a candle in it. Tezuka Osamu used this friend as a model to create his inimitable, larger-than-life villain, Acetylene Lamp. The character had already displayed his talents as an imposingly unscrupulous journalist in Tezuka Osamu's pre-debut study "Lost World: Private Edition", and he subsequently established his position as a top-ranking gangster in the back streets of Tezuka Osamu's Manga works. Whilst the candle on his head lends him a very comic-book-character appearance, he gave superlative performances in serious roles, and the intensely evil aura that he spread in his performance as Lamp, the Far East Chief of German Intelligence in "The Stories of Three Adolfs", is unforgettable.
