Crime, punishment and Tezuka

The Kurkutta blog posted a few sample pages from one of Osamu Tezuka's early works, namely his adaptation of Dostoevsky's Crime and Punishment. The scans are from a long-out-of-print English version that Frederick Schodt translated back when nobody knew what shojo meant. Look at the way he sets mood in these simple panels (remember: read right to left). Even in his early days, he was testing the boundaries of the medium. (found via Matthew Brady)
