    1 thought on “Black Jack Volume 2: Two-Fisted Surgeon (Black Jack)

    1. I'm a little surprised I finished this and even more surprised I frequently reached for it when there was a variety of other reading material around. A comic about a renegade surgeon with a tortured past and a seemingly conflicting morals, a baby/teenager/thing companion that is part synthetic, frequent drawings of the internal workings of surgery - - - ? Not typically my thing but, for whatever reason, I read it front to back with very few breaks.

    2. Osamu Tezuka, Black Jack: Two-Fisted Surgeon (ViZ, 1987)Black Jack continues with more tales of Black Jack's exploits, more revelations about his past, and more exploration of the weird, weird relationship between Black Jack and his assistant/wife/ghostly pal/whatever she is. (The story of Black Jack trying to get her enrolled in school is priceless.) A fun series, and I can't wait to see where Tezuka took it after this. *** ½

    3. Black Jack, the unlicensed doctor, is back with more adventures and philosophy in this sequel.I actually enjoyed Volume 2 more than Volume 1. I thought the stories were a little more original - or perhaps I was just more familiar with Tezuka's style.

    4. Perhaps it's because I didn't read Vol 1 first, but I found this hard to get into - stilted and superficial, with moments of humor.

    5. My first Tezuka comics, these are pretty cool stories about a rogue medical doctor-adventurer who runs around saving people in unconventional and often shocking ways.

    6. Man, these are so fun. I wish this was how medicine really worked, where you can get revenge on someone by getting extensive plastic surgery to look like their favorite pop star.
