Recognised as Tezuka's third most famous work after Astro Boy and Kimba, The White Lion, Black Jack is important in the manga pioneer's canon. Black Jack is a mysterious and charismatic young genius surgeon who travels the world performing amazing medical feats. Though a trained physician, he refuses to accept his license due to his disdain for the medical community. With Vertical's exempliary track record with its quality Tezuca releases, Volume One is a highly anticipated addition.
