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." -Artbomb.net"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.

Great books to have on your shelf and keep forever 18 janvier 2005
Par Waldo McSheepington - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
I am by no means a manga expert, which is probably just the kind of person this book would appeal to. This series was written in the seventies and is now reintroduced to the English-speaking public with a new translation. This is an example of exactly the kind of story that lends itsself so well to "comics". It's amazing how much meaning and emotion can be captured through these beautifully simplified drawings. You can read this as an adult and enjoy it, but teenagers, even little children can understand it (unless you're offended by cartoon boobies) This fourth book is a must have if you have any of the others. It culminates with a very important part of Siddhartha's life, and makes me all the more excited to read the 5th and 6th book!

Suffering 11 décembre 2009
Par Jesse Haller - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
So far this is the best of the series. This volume brings us the image of the Buddha that most are familiar with, that of him meditating under a tree. The messages of Buddhism are shown through the actions of the characters, not just recited to us.

Siddhartha enters a forest in which many enter to under go ordeals. These are nothing more then self-induced suffering, including pain and starvation. He draws his own conclusions about the value of suffering, and learns that not all people that enter the forest do so for pure intentions.

Siddhartha learns that humans are not life, but are a part of the life force that is present in all living beings. And also that, everyone suffers, each person's suffering does not makes one above or below any other.

This volume gives us insight that can enrich ones life, not just a story.

good series on the Buddha's life from a fresh point of view 3 juillet 2006
Par J. O. Williams - Publié sur Amazon.com
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.
Great retelling of Buddha's Life 10 octobre 2009
Par Jmeans - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
When I was first assigned to read this graphic novel, I was very skeptical. I had always looked with disdain upon such media, thinking them very suitable for light entertainment but unable to convey anything meaningful. I was wrong.

Those familiar with the story of Buddha will find this very different from what they learned. A whole new cast of characters is introduced to embellish the tale, such as Yatala the giant slave, the Crystal Prince, and Tatta and Migaila, two reformed bandits. Familiar characters are also enhanced. Sujata plays a much larger role than simply offering him milk, and Brahma himself even makes an appearance.

Throughout the book, Tezuka does not forget that this is first of all a comic. There are plenty of moments of comic relief, including baseball references and author self-insertion. Despite the threat of death ever looming over the plot, the reader is constantly smiling at the characters' antics.

The Forest of Uruvela, in the end, is a stunning display of artistry that perfectly captures Buddha's moment of Enlightenment and shows clearly why Tezuka is consider the godfather of Japanese comics.
Fast Paced, Meaningful, Moving 2 janvier 2010
Par Paige Turner - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
Osama Tezuka 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. In this wonderful volume, he continues the tale of young Siddhartha; he becomes Buddha, and achieves enlightenment. This is the first of the "Buddha" tales in which Tezuka begins to make Buddhist thought a central part of the story and he accomplishes this elegantly and subtly.

This story reaches its crescendo when Buddha says "Like trees, grass, hills and streams, humans exist, as part of nature, so there is some purpose for which we live... tied to all that is! If you did not exst, some thing would go awry. You, too, play a crucial part!"

What is remarkable is he is able to do this while entertaining; as readers, we become spellbound by his picture-perfect drawings. His full page landscapes, although in black and white line drawing, are mesmerizing and captivating. Even if you are not a fan of Japanese manga, try this one; Tezuka may win you over.
