Phoenix Vol. 2 Future
by Osamu Tezuka
Published by VIZ
Review by Tom Good
My last review was of an issue of Vagabond where most of the action took place during a single swordfight. In complete contrast to that, Phoenix Future spans many billions of years. Species and civilizations rise and fall over the course of the story, but throughout it all a mystical bird called the Phoenix appears as a guide for other beings.
The story begins, naturally, in a future world. Humanity lives underground and a few giant computers govern society. Class II Space Patrolman Yamanobe Masato finds himself in trouble because he is in love with a "Moopie" named Tamami. Moopies are alien creatures who can assume different shapes, and this one has the form of a lovely human girl. But Moopies are considered dangerous because they can stimulate human minds and cause them to enter a dreamlike state full of pleasant illusions. The government has banned moopies and ordered all of them killed, so before long, Masato and Tamami are on the run. [more]

Just after I finished reading and enjoying this book, and while in the middle of a marathon telephone session with Dell, I knocked my coffee off my night table and spilled it all over the back cover. This isn't relevant to the review, but I thought I would mention it, as it's all I can think about when I look at the damn thing now. [more]

Because I have a small child, I see a lot of animation, on TV and in the movies. But maybe that's just my rationalization; I grew up watching Warner Brothers cartoons religiously and as an adult (or maybe "adult") I went to the movies to see "Heavy Metal" and Spike and Mike festivals, etc. Having a kid just means I get to watch the same things 80 times instead of 8. For this reason alone I worship the House of Pixar, because I can still sit through "Toy Story" for the 81st time and enjoy it. The same cannot be said of, say, Disney's "The Fox and the Hound".
