Astro Boy Manga's New Edition Previewed Online

posted on by Egan Loo
Dark Horse to reprint Osamu Tezuka's classic this month

The Publishers Weekly magazine's website began hosting a 12-page preview from Osamu Tezuka's classic Astro Boy manga yesterday. The preview shows the origin story of the young robot, and Tezuka himself makes an cameo in the manga; Tezuka breaks the fourth wall to look at how the real world changed in the decades since Astro Boy debuted. This month, Dark Horse is reprinting the manga in a new edition that combines the first two volumes in the original edition. Hong Kong's Imagi studio is planning to release a computer-animated Astro Boy film next year.
