They go so quickly, but this series stays really good. The first story is the real standout in this volume, complete with a robot and creator who clearly act as sort of twisted mirror images to Astro and Dr. Tenma. But, of course, it helps that there's a lot of crazy action and adventure. I am, time and time again, surprised at just how often Tezuka uses the character of Astro's teacher (he's right there with the gun on the cover of this volume), pudgy old man that he is, as a sort of second tie ...more

Though I've read a lot of Tezuka's other work, this is my first time reading Astro Boy. As to be expected, the art style and storytelling are both very simplistic compared to his later work. The book is interesting from a historical perspective, but one its own it's rather boring.

Astro is back in his own time, though I am not sure how he got there. When Astro fights a giant sun robot and melts, what will happen? There is also a cool transforming robot that Astro faces. Kinda miss the appeal of the "present day" stories.

Astro Boy is an amazing series. It's an odd fusion of Isaac Asimov, Gardner Fox, and Tex Avery. It often ignores the material aspects of technology in order to play up the metaphorical implications, like a more complex Silver Age comic. Fascinating.

Edición argentina que, sospechosamente, apareció en librerías de saldo poquísimo tiempo después de haber salido a la venta.
A más de cuatro años de su publicación, sigue siendo el último tomo publicado.

Ahora que lo conseguí a un precio irrisorio junto al #4, sólo me falta leerme el 3 para hacerme panzada de Astroboy.
