130 Storm on Mars

Postby jeffbert » 9 years ago

I thought I already uploaded this one, but could find no trace of it. Anyway, I just captured a new set of frames, so, here they are:
Image
Once again Dr. Moss is involved; I believe the CHRONICLES identified him as the director of NASA, which he seems to be, in all his appearances.

Image

Image
Unfortunately, these two goofus reporters must also go.

Image
Intership communications.

Image

Image

Image
:D

Image

Image
Duke Red's character has a strong dislike of robots, so, he orders Atom to stay in the ship.

Image

Image
But Atom becomes uneasy & leaves anyway; he finds trouble.

These have been hypnotized into gathering the mushrooms.

Image
Special guest stars: THEM!

:lol:

These are GREAT!! Thanks so much, Jeffbert! I've been watching the 80's series lately, and when I see new images from the 60's I still have to say the style and imagination here is INCREDIBLE.

Love those ants!

What "Chronicles" are you referring to, that identified Dr. Moss as being the director of NASA?

Not quite a 'BLEAH!' but it should go in that thread, anyway. :p

Image

Image

Image
Now Red's character recalls his bitter past.

Image
I think the little robot TRUE most resembles Red as a child.

Image
I believe it says 'PERO'

Image

Image
I end the images here, though the story continues just a bit more. Red has realized the error of holding a grudge against ALL robots, because of the actions of ONE robot.

DH volumes 6-8 ("Once upon a Time" Astro boy Tales, part 3: Living Mold from Outer Space). I also think ADVENTURE ON MARS identifies him as director of the AMERICAN SPACE PROGRAM, but I believe this was before NASA was founded.

Here are the names from my notes:
‘Yurush-kun’? Duke Red
“Kashta-taisa”? Duke Red
‘Turie-hakase’: tall guy (DROOPY MUSTACHED GRADUATE GUY)
‘tick-san’
‘tock-san’ tick says ‘taku’

DOG: ‘犬’
Pero: ‘ペロ'

YUP!! You're right - the do refer to NASA and Kennedy Space Center, but I'm sure you're correct about what was originally there. It's really funny to see how our country is viewed by others! (the CIA guy, etc.)

Well, as I understand it, Tezuka had a reason for bitterness toward authoritarian figures, whether CIA or soldier.

According to some sources, he was actually beaten by American soldiers when he was a teenager because he couldn't answer them in English (and as far as I know, this was an usual "prank" during the Occupation :( ). Gotta love post-wars (we know a lot about it in Spain, and more in the region of Catalonia, where I am from:cry :) .
