So, this is where I gave up on this series.

One of the perils of being incredibly awesome is that if you start to be marginally less awesome, you get judged pretty harshly for it. If I'd started a new manga series written and drawn at the level of this volume of Black Jack, I would love it. This is not a bad book, not at all.

But after 14 volumes of stand-alone episodes and variety of cases, by the time I get to this point every reread, its feeling utterly samey. I feel at this point like I've rea
I ended up reading this one out of order, but then the best part about this series is that you truly don't have to read any of it in order for the most part. You can pick up almost any volume and read it without worrying that you'll be lost.

Great medical manga from Tezuka-san.

Another great, gross volume by Master Tezuka. What else is there to say, The Black Jack series holds up as one of the best manga. Period.
