Once again, my husband is donating a couple of the review books sent his way to serve as a contest prize on my health blog. This week I am giving away two comic collections by the "father of anime," Osamu Tezuka, Black Jack Volume 1 and Black Jack Volume 3.
You might think it odd that I am giving away comics on a health blog, but I have my reasons...
Osamu Tezuka's Black Jack series centers around a renegade surgeon ("Black Jack"), who is renowned as the best in the world. The interesting thing about the series is the real medical issues that confront the surgeon. Tezuka obviously did his research, and these medical crises are not only explained in detail (as are their treatments), but his artwork is also exceptionally realistic. Almost every vignette has taught me something about the human body. So, in the interests of reading, fun, and learning about anatomy and the pathology of disease, I am giving these books away this week.
To enter the contest, please leave a comment with your favorite fictional doctor (from books, television, movies, even cartoons).
The winner will be chosen randomly at midnight, Wednesday, June 3rd, and hopefully another contest will start the next day.
