Exclusive Comics Excerpt: ‘Apollo's Song’




Every week, the Comics Page introduces you to brand-new graphic novels by the world's best artists and writers. Manga, superheroes, indie comix — we'll cover them all as our editors select the best the exploding comics world has to offer.



The gods, with their poetic justice, can be unrelenting. Just ask young cynic Shogo, who sinned against love. Electroshock therapy was only meant to bring him face to face with his own violent misdeeds but instead landed him in the court of a stern goddess.


Today on the Comics Page, we're proud to present a sixteen-page excerpt from Apollo's Song, the totally trippy, landmark 1970 manga by Osamu Tezuka, published in English for the first time this month by Vertical, Inc.
