Teaser Introduction

OK here is the "teaser", introduction to my work in progress. I've used actual events in the life of Osmau Tezuka in this story in a fictional manor with characters of my own invention. The time line is close to correct. Tezuka's Manga stories will become the inspiration for an American scientist to...

Atom story re-told in a different way....

I've been working on a short story based on the Tetsuwan Atom Manga, with some ideas from Clive Cussler's Dirk Pitt series and maybe a pinch of Indiana Jones. The story outline so far.... A technologist (Albert Tenamann) working at a government sponsered think tank is developing a robot soldier for ...

There was also ONE episode of the 1963 Astro Boy Anime that had both Dr. Tenma and Tobio in an alternate history story. That would be "Mystery of the Metal Men" - one of my favs! :) Atom gets blown into an alternative universe where Tobio didn't die. It's VERY cool. Another episode that has Atom an...

I skipped ahead to watch that specific episode, actually. Black Jack is totally badass, but the subject matter of the show sometimes makes me queasy. ^-^; I read in an older thread once that Atom shows up in at least two more Black Jack manga stories (or was it just one?), both in more prominent ro...

Another thing. Someone mentioned that Atom appeared in a Manga episode of Black Jack as a human. Well Atom DID have a human alter-igo of Tobio and that is actually the character that would have been used by Tezuka in the Manga. Atom-Tobio actually appeared in several episodes of Black Jack, there wa...

Actually Uran is a form of Element #92, AKA Uranium which WAS named after the planet or god take your pick. Probably picked this name since her brother is named 'Atom', maybe Tezuka had a thing for atomic power.

Very interesting thread. The Atom from this series looks like the prototype for Jetter Mars. A prototype for Jetter's sister is there too. As far as Astro's nipples go, they did appear on Atlas in the 1983 anime. Also this Atom is a bit of a throwback to the original "Captain Atom" as far as the art...

One thing for sure it seems like we might very well get the TV specials such as Marine Express on Region 1 DVD next year. :) That would be nice. At least one Anime site had been streaming a Marine Express fan sub earlier this year. I finally got to watch it after seeing bits and pieces of it withou...
