IMMORTALITY, AT WHAT COST? In the Glass Mansion, a family has been frozen in cryosleep for 20 years under the orders of their patriarch. When the oldest son Ichirou awakes, he struggles to accept the reality that he has slept away 20 years of his life. Ichirou plans to exact revenge on those in his family that stole his life from him. As Shirou, the youngest brother, attempts to stop Ichirou, he becomes aware of the dangerous side effect of cryosleep that led to its national ban years ago. How far will Ichirou fall, and will Shirou be able to stop him? In Record of the Glass Castle, Osamu Tezuka tackles the great quandary of immortality at the cost of humanity, in a different, much darker light than he often does in his better-known masterpieces like Phoenix. In this tale, the search for humanity seems more hopeless than ever, tangled in hatred, greed, and lust. This one volume series is a must-read for the fans of Tezuka's dark side, as well as those who can appreciate a story that won't spell out all the answers.

Amidst the chaos of World War II, two Japanese sailors hear of Zephyrus, an utterly captivating woman in the South Pacific. Many years have since passed, and now Zephyrus has resurfaced in Japan, wielding her mysterious power over all men to exact revenge for their crimes against women since the beginning of time! Gohonmatsu Seki is the only man with the ability to resist her allure, but even he seems ill-equipped to save his gender! Editorial Reviews: "The work is not perfect, I still find the final chapter to be a rushed, anti-climactic mess and the chapter involving a young doctor using Dreamscape-like tactics to cure a woman from her inability to speak is more than a little absurd and out of place. Still, the comic is emotionally draining in some spots, funny in others and Tezuka's view of human society is poignant. Though written in the late 1960s, his depiction of our civilization overcome by greed and power, stepping on or over those who get in the way, rings true today. Definitely one of my favorite comics by Japan's renowned author and illustrator, Swallowing the Earth shouldn't be missed."

As the saying goes, "power corrupts, and absolute power corrupts absolutely," and that also goes without exception to three high school students, who set out on a science field trip and encounter the Euphrates tree, a tree that bores fruit that gives superpowers to anyone that eats from it. With the discovery of their new found supernatural powers, will they be able to control it, or will they themselves be out of control? Osamu Tezuka took a look at the fate of humanity in The Euphrates Tree, a missive about the damage mankind has done (and was on the cusp of in the cold war of the 1970's this story originated in) thanks to over-abundance of knowledge and an abuse of the great bounty nature offers. With the fate of humanity at stake, the trio of troublemakers must find the fault in one-another and prevent them from destroying the world. Tezuka brings the birthplace of mankind to the modern day in this moral masterpiece.

One day, four of the town’s children wander into the ruins and vanish without a trace, only to mysteriously reappear a few weeks later.

But what happens when another group of bounty hunters have taken up the same assignment? Head of the notorious mercenary clan, the Marcus family, oldest brother Borgoff leads his not-so-merry band of ruthless renegades not only on a mission of pursuit and retrieval, but also on a path of destruction that'll hopefully wipe out anything that gets in the way from their payday, including D.

In hopes to buy enough time to thwart his pursuers and escape to his secret destination, he enlists help from a safe haven village inhabited by mutant monster outcasts with daunting powers of their own. What is the reason behind his taking of a prize he seems to hold most dear — is this really abduction or some strange form of vampire elopement? Is this vampire Noble, more than what he leads others to believe? It is up to D to find the true purpose behind the chase and time is running out.
