Captain Ken

By Osamu Tezuka

Captain Ken takes place in the future, when Earth has already colonized Mars as the new frontier. The story opens up with a diary entry from a Martian recalling the history of how the Earthlings came to be the supreme rulers of Mars.

"It started in the year 1983, when these 'Earthlings' landed on our home. Our ancestors approached the strange creatures, but that was when their terror began...we didn't know for how long this dark period would last. Then one day, he came..."

This savior is Captain Ken. He's a mysterious, young gunslinger from Earth who travels to Mars with his trusty sidekick and gadget-horse, Arrow. Ken and his friends soon find themselves caught between the cross fires of the Martian and Earthlings as the tension between the two species escalates. It's Tezuka's epic adventure full of "thrilling mysteries, assassination plots, and interplanetary conspirators" that is sure to be a great addition your manga collection.
