I am currently working on the text to vol. 1 of 5 in the manga series. Vol. 1 contributed to the 1963 series' episode #19, Atom versus Garon (Cosmic Giant), obviously, but one additional story owes its existence to Garon. #73 (64), [b]Big Titan[/b], has Dr. Putt (Buck) kidnap Uran because he mistakes her for his daughter, Shima (Keema) when she was younger. In Garon vol. #5, the story has been started in vol. 4, but, until I get hard copies from Amazon.co.jp, I will not know how the story starts.
Anyway, ブッド博士 / Dr. Budd, kidnaps ピック / Pik 'Pick'? for the same reason. Pick is an important part of Garon, though Pick appears to be a human boy. So, Garon is not happy about it.
The 1st 50 or so pages are available to view: https://books.rakuten.co.jp/instantpreview/8508ba784cd03ca0abc8989a0aa1d265?viewmode=2&scid=wi_tzktokobo_0045_5
I contacted Rakuten to see if I could use its service to download the books, but, in the USA, apparently not.
The TEZUKA Japanese language site has links to all 5 volumes, whose 1st 50 or so pages are available to view free online. Can't read Japanese? You can still get a very good idea just by viewing the panels.
Talk about all things Astro Boy!
