quick update!-- just picked this up last week at my local shop. It's The Comics Journal: Special Edition Volume 5. As usual, everything that TCJ puts out is incredibly detailed and great to look at--- but this one particularly is WONDERFUL! It features, huge full-page reproduction of Maruo and Hino panels, a long history of Tezuka's work (included info on lots of his lesser known stories) and an INTERVIEW with HIDESHI HINO! There is a pic of him at the San Diego Comic Con 2004 (where i was lucky! enough to meet him briefly), and the guy looks as cool as a cucumber. Definitely pick this one up if you can spare the $$$.
more comics coming in the next few days!
