Black Jack, Vol. 12 - Osamu Tezuka

You can tell that they thought they'd gotten the best of the Black Jack stories out of the way with the publication of the last volume. In this one, we get some sameyness, a bit more mystical stuff, an increase in ambiguous endings and a glimpse into Black Jack's history which is a little telling, but which I can see why was left out of previous volumes. The art and dialogue don't have a drop-off, but the ideas just feel a little less impactful. A good book, but far from the best.
