While attending Toy Fair 2015 in NY last week I had the chance to speak to Aub Driver from Dark Horse and he mentioned that Astro Boy was getting the Omnibus treatment. While it was great to hear that Osamu Tezuka’s work was being collected for mainstream distribution I did not think it would be announced this soon. I am happy to report that volume one of the Astro Boy omnibus will be hitting store shelves this September with retail price of $19.99. Fans will get over 700 pages of rare and out of print Astro Boy goodness.[toggles behavior=”toggle”] [toggle title=”Show Press Release “]
