208A Table 5
Speaker: Thomas Maluck

Ignite speakers present for exactly 5 minutes, accompanied by 20 slides. Each slide is displayed for 15 seconds, with slides advancing automatically. This is one of six Ignite sessions in this time slot.

"God of Manga" Osamu Tezuka created over 150,000 pages of comics in his lifetime, planting him in the heart of manga history and influence. Instead of the Ken Burns rendition of Tezuka's biography, I want to share the most utterly unique moments from his catalog so that other librarians can see why Tezuka is as timely, weird, funny, and thought-provoking for every age as ever.
