Description de l'ouvrage

1 octobre 2005
Osamu Tezuka’s vaunted storytelling genius, consummate skill at visual expression, and warm humanity blossom fully in his eight-volume epic of Siddhartha’s life and times. Tezuka evidences his profound grasp of the subject by contextualizing the Buddha’s ideas; the emphasis is on movement, action, emotion, and conflict as the prince Siddhartha runs away from home, travels across India, and questions Hindu practices such as ascetic self-mutilation and caste oppression. Rather than recommend resignation and impassivity, Tezuka’s Buddha predicates enlightenment upon recognizing the interconnectedness of life, having compassion for the suffering, and ordering one’s life sensibly. Philosophical segments are threaded into interpersonal situations with ground-breaking visual dynamism by an artist who makes sure never to lose his readers’ attention.

Tezuka himself was a humanist rather than a Buddhist, and his magnum opus is not an attempt at propaganda. Hermann Hesse’s novel or Bertolucci’s film is comparable in this regard; in fact, Tezuka’s approach is slightly irreverent in that it incorporates something that Western commentators often eschew, namely, humor.

Revue de presse

"Infused with humor and history, the epic of Siddhartha is perhaps Osamu Tezuka's crowning acheivement and illustrates why, without irony, Tezuka is referred to as 'The King of Japanese Comics'." - LA Weekly"Buddha is one of Tezuka's true masterpieces. We're lucky to have this excellent new edition in English." - Scott McCloud, author of Understanding Comics"In handsome volumes designed by Chip Kidd, the Vertical books present Tezuka at his best." - National Post

"Buddha is an engrossing tale. The armchair philosopher, the devout Buddhist, the casual manga fan - this book satisfies all with its tale of humanism through sequential art, and definitely earns its place on a bibliophile's bookshelf." -Anime Insider"This is one of the greatest acheivements of the comics medium, a masterpiece by one of the greats.""In Tezuka's world, the exquisite collapses into the goofy in a New York minute, the goofy into the melodramatic, the melodramatic into the brutal, and the brutal into the sincerely touching. The suprising result is a work wholly unique and downright fun." -Time Out NY"Tezuka's Buddha is a striking and memorable confluence of ancient wisdom and contemporary popular art." -Yoga Journal

Biographie de l'auteur

Osamu Tezuka (1928-89) is the godfather of Japanese manga comics. He originally intended to become a doctor and earned his degree before turning to what was then a medium for children. His many early masterpieces include the series known in the U.S. as Astro Boy. With his sweeping vision, deftly interwined plots, feel for the workings of power, and indefatigable commitment to human dignity, Tezuka elevated manga to an art form. The later Tezuka, when he authored Buddha, often had in mind the mature readership that manga gained in the sixties and that had only grown ever since. The Kurosawa of Japanese pop culture, Osamu Tezuka is a twentieth century classic.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Entire series is worth the investment 3 juillet 2006
Par J. O. Williams - Publié sur
Format:Relié|Achat vérifié
I am Buddhist, so I may have a biased opinion about this series. I honestly am not a big comic book/manga fan, but this series caught my interest. I ended up buying the whole 8 book series and very much enjoyed reading them. These books are not for young children, as there is definitely adult themes, language and drawings of violence and sex in them. These books are not for people looking for serious Buddhist dialogue either, but they are fun and a new and interesting way to view the life of the Buddha. I originally got them for myself and will keep them to share with my children when they get in the mid to late teens. They are worth a read and I recommend them to all interested in the Buddha's life, but from a fresh and not so serious point of view.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Portrayal of a prophet 10 février 2006
Par Steven W. Cooper - Publié sur
This 7th instalment of Buddha continues the fascinating story Tezuka poured so much effort into. For me, one of the most instructive points of this story has been Buddha's humanity. In this book, Buddha is beginning to age - resembling a middle-aged bum with sagging earlobes. Becoming enlightened does not automatically make him omniscient, and this leads to intense struggles as he applies a philosophy of the eternal to his position in the world as it was when he lived.

On reflection, and in the context of recent Muslim anger over the portrayal of Mohamed in a comic, it is useful to recall a point made by Aldous Huxley in the Devils of Loudun concerning enlightenment:

"In so far as it helps the individual to forget himself and his ready-made opinions about the universe, religion will prepare the way for realization. In so far as it arouses and justifies such passions as fear, scrupulosity, righteous indignation, institutional patriotism, and crusading hate, in so far as it harps on the saving virtues of certain theological notions, certain hallowed arrangements of words, religion is an obstacle in the way of realization"

In the much-needed debate over free expression of religious ideas, we should not be afraid of offending sensibilities that have been conditioned by forces intent on putting obstacles in the way of individual enlightenment.

In this light, Tezuka's portrayal of Buddha can be seen as an important reminder for us today.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Buddhist Comedy for the lay people 16 juin 2006
Par Damon R. Clark - Publié sur
I have to say that when I first started reading the Buddha series,...I was immediately taken in by the comedy and light heartedness of the story. Although Tezuka Osamu took a few liberties here and there with the story of Siddhartha, I was captivated. There is also a lot of brutality in the story as well, but it is well done because it illustrates some of the very inhumane behavior going on during those times. I am also very pleased at how Tezuka san showed the very very human side of Buddha rather than making him appear as an emotionless god.

Volume 7 in the Buddha story was very good and I definitely recommend these books for kids and young Buddhists alike. It would great if this story could be made into an anime series.

Great graphics and engaging plot. This installment wasn't as spiritual as some of the other books in the series. Overall, Tezuka blows me away.
5.0 étoiles sur 5 Redemption & Betrayal, Love & Hatred, Joy & Suffering 3 janvier 2010
Par Paige Turner - Publié sur
If by Volume 7, you are still along the glorious journey that is the "Buddha" series by Osama Tezuka you already know what a genius he is. He is a legend, often called "Japan's greatest cartoonist." He is worthy of this praise. His detailed black and white drawings are moving, vivid and cinematic and his story-telling prowess is astounding.

As Tezuka builds toward the climax of the story, pummels us with the suffering, violence, unrequited love, and sheer ill fate of his characters. There is redemption and betrayal, love and hatred, joy and suffering. He tugs at our emotions, yet the ultimate hopeful message of the Buddha comes through.

What is remarkable is he is able to do this while entertaining; he spellbinds readers with his picture-perfect drawings and fantastical settings.

The "Buddha" series is a milestone in this reader's reading history, a colossal work that will never be forgotten.
