Cherub faced, capable of spaceflight, and armed with machine guns, Astro Boy (or Mighty Atom, as he’s known in Japan), has been delighting audiences the world over since 1952 in comics, animated TV series, and films. Now the original comic that started it all will be collected in a lavish Ominbus edition from Dark Horse Comics. Astro Boy Omnibus Volume 1 is nearly 700 pages worth of Astro Boy’s adventures, including rare and out of print material, and will be released in October, 2015.
A robot that’s part Pinocchio and part Superman, Astro Boy was created by Osamu Tezuka (1928 - 1989), who is popularly considered the "God of Manga" for his groundbreaking work in Japanese comics and animation. Tezuka’s work spans family friendly fare to dark psychological dramas and include Phoenix, Black Jack, and Message to Adolf, among many other titles.
