Phoenix: Early Works contains stories serialized from 1954 to 1957.​ This volume contains an early version of the story Dawn,​ as well as a chapter on ancient Egypt,​ Greece and Rome.​

The stories collected here showcase an earlier phase of Tezuka's art and storytelling - and expose a more youthful,​ sweet side of the master creator.​ They also illustrate the link between early manga and American comics and cartoons,​ and reveal Tezuka's deep fascination with Walt Disney.​ The work was originally geared toward a younger audience than the Phoenix sagas which began in the 1960s.​

Story and art by Osamu Tezuka.​
