The Power of Manga: Osamu Tezuka and Shotaro Ishinomori

The Museum of Contemporary Art, Tokyo pays tribute to two of Japan's great manga pioneers in its summer show. Osamu Tezuka and Shotaro Ishinomori weren't just ground-breaking innovators in the world of Japanese comics – they were also colleagues, working together on Shonen Manga magazine in the early 1950s. The Power of Manga charts the careers of both men, from early drawings to seminal works like Tezuka's Atom Boy and Ishinomori's Cyborg 009. In testament to their lasting impact, it also includes homages from young Japanese and international artists who've been influenced by these two manga giants – and we're guessing there have been quite a few.
