Review: Pluto: Urasawa X Tezuka Volume 1

January 30, 2011

Read the review and more after the break.

Urasawa, N, & Tezuka, O. (2009). Pluto: Urasawa x Tezuka. San Francisco, CA: VIZ Media LLC.

When one of the most beloved robots on earth, Mont Blanc, is murdered under strange circumstances, a detective named Gesicht most solve the crime. He must also keep 6 more of the world’s most powerful robots from meeting the same end as Mont Blanc. Based on a story arc from Osamu Tezuka’s Astro Boy series, Pluto is a bold re-imagining. It’s grim and beautiful, filled with great, complicated characters (many of them robots). It also has a strong suspense, mystery element that keeps the reader guessing. The art is also deep and beautiful.
