Astro Boy Vol. 5

Half a century old, Astro Boy has once again taken America by storm! Created by the late, great Osamu Tezuka, Japan's "God of Manga," Astro Boy is the cornerstone of today's thriving manga and anime industries. Never before available in an English-language edition in the States, Dark Horse brings Astro Boy to America in collaboration with Studio Proteus, with translations by Frederik L. Schodt, author of Manga! Manga! and translator of Ghost in the Shell and Barefoot Gen. In this volume: Astro Boy must convince a confused robot not to aid an evil plot to take over an island rich in mineral wealth; a space leopard sent by conqueror aliens must be stopped before he can drain Earth's energy; and Astro must team with a robot-hating detective to apprehend thieves who have stolen an artificial sun!
