Gold Key Astro Boy #1 - Gangor The Monster Pt. One

The one and only Gold Key Astro Boy comic, the entirety of which I’ll be posting in three parts. Gangor the Monster is an adaptation of an episode of the original Osamu Tezuka animation. I don’t think the second story in the book came from the cartoon, though. If it did, I’ve never seen that particular episode.







That last panel is very Pop Art, don’t you think?...

Yer right, that last panel is brill. I wonder if any of this story art was lifted from an original Tezuka manga or just created from scratch? It's of course not even close to his style... just wondering aloud.

don't know, but the second story to come, Attack of the Mud People, reminds me of Milton the Monster for some reason...

I actaully had this issue, when I was 6. The cover is all I remember but that memory is vivid. I also saw the episode on TV.

Thanks for posting it so I can read it finally!

Looking forward to the Astroboy movie this fall!
