Another loss, more related to comics. Keiji Nakazawa creator of "Barefoot Gen" has died in Japan at the age of 73.

I don't like manga, but even I was aware of Barefoot Gen and have always intended to read at least the first volume. It was the fictionalized story of Nakazawa's life following the bombing of Hiroshima. He also created "I Saw It!" which is a more factual account of the bombing itself.

"I saw it" is a powerful, masterpiece of a book. One of the treasures of the Copper Age.
RIP.

I'm happy to know it is held in such high regard. Now I really want to read them! Apparently, his books are used to teach children in Japan about the bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki.
