Osamu Tezuka is a well-known Japanese comic artist who created “Astro Boy” and many more titles. This is a talk about the life and work of Osamu Tezuka, who died 20 years ago, on February 9 1989. Tezuka was only seventeen years old when he sold his first professional work, and he completed medical school and qualified as a doctor while working as an artist. His story is very inspiring, especially for teenagers and parents who are worried about their teenagers’ love of comics and TV.
