Pokémon the great adventure 23

€9.90 (buy online)

buddhas 7
by Osamu Tezuka
€14.00 (buy online)

In an unjust society, governed by a rigid and ruthless caste system, a very special child is born, Prince Siddhartha Gautama. Though surrounded by privileges, he is apathetic and doesn’t seem to need anything. The meeting with Tatta, a young thief of the lowest caste, will lead Siddhartha to confront reality in a new way and to take an unexpected path that will change himself and the whole world. Considered one of the masterpieces of Osamu Tezuka’s maturity, “Buddha” is much more than just the story of the life of Siddhartha, the man destined to become the founder of Buddhism and one of the key spiritual figures in history. With his unrivaled storytelling skills, Tezuka creates in this work a semi-fictional biography, which relies heavily on action to drive the plot and focuses on a large cast of characters. An adaptation that, betraying it in part, enhances the meaning of the original story and makes it even more exciting and symbolic.
