Read full description of the books 火鳥, Vol. 4:The Phoenix series is remarkable, but this book is the real masterpiece in the longer series. It can be read without reading any of the others, as Phoenix is a series of related stories set in both the past and future with each story centered around the mythical firebird.
When a misshapen and murderous brute maims a sculptor who has offered him hospitality, their destinies are linked. The book is an intricate study of both men, with nuanced characterizations and both redemption and ruin. The way each of them responds to a brush with the immortal bird is unexpected and fascinating.
The art is also some of Tezuka's best, with intricately rendered scenes of 8th-century Japan (especially of the magnificent Buddhist temple which plays a pivotal role). The art is appealing and with a cartoony touch, but is not in the stereotypical style most American's think of when they hear the word Manga. I'm a big fan of Tezuka's, and he created mountains of work, but thus far, this is my favorite.

Dr. Osamu Tezuka (手塚治虫) was a Japanese manga artist, animator, producer and medical doctor, although he never practiced medicine. Born in Osaka Prefecture, he is best known as the creator of Astro Boy and Kimba the White Lion. He is often credited as the "Father of Anime", and is often considered the Japanese equivalent to Walt Disney, who served as a major inspiration during his formative years. His prolific output, pioneering techniques, and innovative redefinitions of genres earned him such titles as "the father of manga" and "the God of Manga."
