Tezuka Osamu’s MW: Challenging Politics and Society Through Manga

MW, one of Tezuka’s lesser-known stories first serialized in 1976, is an example of how the artist attempted to radically reinvent his work by publishing lengthy, adult-oriented, action-packed, and often violent and highly political thrillers. It is also a work that, because of its explicit tackling of sensitive, even taboo themes, is often ignored in reviews of Tezuka’s oeuvre and in exhibitions or museums dedicated to his work.
