And just before 9/11!!

Ah the suspense! i can't wait to see all the guys getting back together, and of course i hope for the manga to go beyond just the towers, the world didn't end that day there're plenty of other things to tell.

Wonder if he messed up his back muscles again like when he was drawing Pluto and 20th Century Boys at the same time... Man's in his fifties...

In a interview after finishing 20th Century Boys and Pluto.
And talking about his back injury and severe pain in his body.

He said he going to take it easy from here on out and take breaks and not push himself so much with Billy Bat.

He was saying he truly thinks Osamu Tezuka died at 60 because he worked too much and some other manga artists died young for the same reason and he didn't want to go out like them.

And Urasawa turns 55 here in a couple weeks.

Urasawa has worked crazy hard pretty much the last 30 years always making 2 manga series at once he more than deserves rest and breaks.
