I bought the first five volumes of this series from my local nerd store, owned by one of my friends. The main reason I bought it was for the nostalgia aspect.

I remembered watching and loving it as a kid growing up (I believe the anime was out in either the late 90s or early 2000s). I couldn't remember much about it after I got older, but I remember it being one I watched every week, a series I loved. I always had scattered memories of what it was about - but never more than that.

It wasn't until after I saw 009 on the Cartoon Network that I learned of the existence of this lovely manga. SO many people today prefer modern-day manga by Clamp or whatever (not that I have a problem with that - I do enjoy Clamp) but I also like the oldies. I'm a huge fan of Osamu Tezuka, and I was struck with the similarity in art and later learned that Ishinomori was a fan of Tezuka. 009 is a interesting idea (it might seem a bit dated now, but it's still great) If you're a fan of old-school ...more

This book is remarkably political for something I remember watching as a TV series when I was a young teenager. The statements are fairly powerful for the Cold War era - about the war machine that destroys regular people for the sake of power and profit. That's sort of the extent of my respect, though. I can deal with a cartoony art style in my comics, but I don't understand how a book that professes to represent people of different races does so in pretty terrible caricatures of characters.

I like this book and if u like the action you should read this book 2.its about some scientific people that they get some kid and they make a experiment with them some of them can fly, run as fast as the light, and the other ones are strong and they can change in anything. they can have ultraviolet. then they scape from the lab and all the people are looking with them, and after they fine them they star getting in a fight. at the end of the book they scape by taking a sub.

Another fun manga from way back when. The art is very much of the Tezuka school and the story is a cyborg, multi-racial variant of the Magnificent Seven. My only complaint is that it's surprisingly wordy with a very lengthy set-up before the action gets going. Not my favorite Ishinomori manga but still an enjoyable one.

Adoravo alla follia questo anime e sono felicissima di leggerne il manga. Certo ,il disegno è antiquato e la storia arruginita rispetto alle opere odierne, ma rimane comunque un pilastro. Le note a fine libro sono molto interessanti. Non vedo l'ora di conoscere tutto di questo universo che tanto mi ha colpito nella mia infanzia.

I had no idea when I pulled this off the library shelf how politically charged it was. I'd seen some of the anime when they were showing it on Adult Swim. It was written in the 1960s and carries a very strong anti-war message. I look forward to reading more.

Uno dei miei mito da bambino. Finalmente posso leggerlo in tutta tranquillità. Mettiamoci poi che ha quasi 50 anni, fa sí che sia un piccolo capolavoro.
Wow this is good comics
In realtà un due e mezzo. Non certo per la storia, che comunque mostra i suoi anni, ma per l'adattamento e l'edizione italiani, non proprio il massimo. Spero i prossimi numeri siano più curati.
