Osamu Tezuka “Manga no Kamisama”

Paris à la Geek visits the Osamu Tezuka retrospective “Manga no Kamisama” at the Festival International de la Bande Dessinée d’Angoulême. Miguel Guerra and Suzy Dias drooled as they looked at over 200 original pieces of art, some of which date from the late 1940s (rare indeed!). We highlighted a few for you and shared our thoughts on the God of Manga!

In a fitting show of respect, the Osamu Tezuka retrospective was held in the Musée d’Angoulême, located right next to the jaw dropping Romanesque-Byzantine Cathédrale Saint-Pierre d’Angoulême (1128).
