Wow, that is a great storyline -- GOTTA get the manga! Looks like adult AB can't fly anymore. Wonder if this was one of Tezuka's concepts or that of one of his writers... soooo cool -- might have to change my Avatar to grown-up Atom :) Sent my old best friend the link to this site and one of the ima...

Jeffbert you are the BEST!!! As an artist, I have to say -- this is honestly close to what I imagined. I thought they might "de-spike" him, but hey, he wouldn't be Astro anymore! How cool they did the same to Cobalt and Uran. And of course Uran has an impossible Barbie Doll figure!! Thanks Osamu! I ...

Thanks Jeffbert! I recently found the Tezuka in English site -- that is a an incredible compilation you've put together -- I'll enjoy going through it all. It's really fascinating to read/view this body of work as an adult (I appreciate the humor now -- including the "punny" character/location names...

In the 1960's American version Astor/Toby was driving at "supersonic speeds" on Electronic Highway 66. If memory serves, the narrator said the highway controlled everything -- and nothing could go wrong -- "or could it?" It looked like he drove into a city center -- maybe that wasn't as reliable, as...

Did anyone ever work up Astro's Natal Chart?? He's an Aries...

You know, where all the stars are aligned at time of birth -- an individualized astrological profile of someone born in Tokyo on April 7, 2003? I've searched but couldn't find anything.

Happy Birthday to my life-long hero -- just had to join this forum!

What a difference a YEAR makes!! Until last summer I had no idea there was SO MUCH out there about Astro Boy. I'm one of the "original American fans" as I was only 10 years old when the cartoon version was broadcast in the USA, and I drove my parents crazy to be near a TV set every Saturday night (n...
