Double punch

Double Punch

Here's Osamu Tezuka and Leiji Matsumoto drawing the same thing in different ways. One is clearly better! The worse one gets repeated in the exact same way 3 times in the book. In a way that creates a funny rhythm, which is good in its own way... but man, just look at the good one, wow!

PS So I picked up some Matsumoto manga, and generally don't like the drawings at all (I would call them: "ugly" and "bad"). I think his style changed a lot over time, but this particular book (Queen Emeraldas, 1978) does not feature stellar draftsmanship. Anyway lots of good things to say about Matsumoto...
