"Features a previously unpublished 20-page Black Jack story by Tezuka - available nowhere else - and finally approved for publication by the Tezuka estate!


Though a trained physician, Black Jack refuses to accept a medical license due to his hatred and mistrust of the medical community's hypocrisy and corruption. He has occasional run-ins with the authorities, as well as from gangsters and criminals who approach him for illegal operations. But because Black Jack keeps his true motives secret, his ethics are perceived as questionable and he is considered a selfish, uncaring devil." - VERTICAL



Somewhere between medical drama, cartoon humor, and film noir lies Black Jack, the ongoing adventures of an underground doctor who is the last resort for some very unusual patients. In this volume, the risk-taking Black Jack is at the mercy of a doctor after a horrible car wreck.


This volume is in excellent condition, with very slight shelf wear. Rare and hard to find, especially in this Previews Exclusive hardcover format.
