Gotta say that I have Pluto, 20th Century Boys, and the Art of Osamu Tezuka on my shelf -- all truly amazing books/series Very Happy

It's great to see Urasawa still kicking it with nominations. Hopefully we'll be seeing him winning some Eisner's as well as some Harvey's once all these awards finally go out Very Happy

Also, if you're a fan of Tezuka, you really should grab the Art of Osamu Tezuzka. It's an indepth encyclopedia of his life as well as almost every work of his. It also attempts at going through his large array of Stars, and is filled with a lovely amount of pictures (Tezuka standing infront of Paramout, wut? Seeing Fred Schodt when he was young, wut?)

the Anime World Order podcast does a brilliant review of this book.

EDIT: on the AWO sidebar that's 2010, February, episode #85d.

2nd EDIT: Clarissa rocks. Shocked

Yes! This is great news! I just finished reading 20th Century Boys last week, and I have to say, it's probably the best manga I've ever read.

Yes, let me add in my love of 20th Century Boys. It is like Watchmen... it is not only good, but it's so good that it redefines the medium.

Most people here probably haven't even heard of the Harvey. Laughing
