RIP

EDIT: I suppose the funerary tone of this episode is why Fred Ladd rejected it. :hyo:

Beleiving himself doomed to die underground, Higeoyaji prepares to bury himself:

The images won't load for me, not just in this thread but in another one as well. :cry:

BTW thanks again for all of these, jeffbert! :) I know you don't want to put too many images but it kind of makes you want to buy the series, if that makes you feel better. :D

Curious: in the manga version, the rebel who helps Hideogaji is not a woman but a black man.

Can it be for the FALSE accusations of racism against Tezuka?

This probably deserves it's own thread, but I found the racism disclaimers at the start of the Dark Horse mangas to be a bit strange. I couldn't find anything that appeared to be discriminatory.

It was because of a complain of the Assiociation for Black People Dignity (or anyting like this). They said that when Tezuka drew black beings, he drew them on a very charichaturesque style. But at the time (the fifties), almost all comic artists drew black people that way. However, Tezuka, when he was drawing in his "serious" style, he drew black people as very attractive men and women, like one can see in Alabaster. But, you know, it was 1989, the conservative era, and "politically correct thingies" were on the eye of the storm, then.

Tezuka wasn't a racist. In fact, he drew many black charachters, some of them true heroes like the best childhood friend of Black Jack (the only child who dared to give part of his skin to little BJ), the man Higeoyaji meets in this episode (a sciencist) and dies trying to protect him, some doctors in Black Jack, etc.

However, to check and share points of view, if anyone in this forum is black, I would be thankful about knowing his/her opinion on this issue.
