From the creator of Astro Boy and Metropolis, comes Nextworld part of Osamu Tezuka's cycle of original science-fiction graphic novels - including Lost World and Metropolis - published in the late 1940s and early 1950s. Fumoon, a creature with supernatural powers, discovers a colossal gas cloud approaching Earth that will completely disintegrate the planet! In preparation for our world's demise, Fumoon plans to rescue all of Earth's living creatures and transport them via flying saucer to a new home on another planet! A dazzling work of imagination - and guest-starring some friends you may recognize from Astro Boy - Nextworld is timeless graphic fiction from one of the medium's true masters, available for the first time in an English-language edition. Translation by Kumar Sivasubramanian (Metropolis, Lost World).

Review: Nextworld, Vol. 2 (Nextworld #2)

User Review  - Matt - Goodreads

The afterword where Tezuka explains that this was a 1000-page script trimmed down into a 300-page manga goes a long way towards explaining why this is so bad. Still, for all the impossible to follow storytelling, it did have a surprisingly touching ending. Read full review

Review: Nextworld, Vol. 1 (Nextworld #1)

User Review  - Matt - Goodreads

Even rougher than Lost World. Moves between characters and set pieces abruptly, with immature cartooning and a "insane even for Tezuka" plot. It also doesn't help that, due to the age of the work, the reproduction quality is poor and makes it even harder to follow. Give it a miss. Read full review

About the author (2003)

Regarded by many as the "God of Manga" Osamu Tezuka was born in 1928 in Toyonoka, in Osaka, Japan. A prolific author and artist, Tezuka is generally regarded as the single figure responsible for developing Japan's massive manga and anime industries. His cinematic art style and novelistic narratives have made his work as universally accessible and relevant now as when first published in Japan. A list of his well-known and universally loved work includes the classic JUNGLE EMPEROR LEO (also known as Kimba the White Lion), BLACK JACK, ADOLF, MIGHTY ATOM (known as ASTRO BOY in the U.S.) and METROPOLIS (recently made into a hit anime film). Tezuka continued creating comics until his death in 1989.
