Tezuka Osamu

手塚 治虫 (Wikipedia) is a dead god.

Tezuka is widely regarded as the most influential figure in manga, partly because official adulation of Tezuka after his death in 1989 became a means of obscuring early realistic anti-establishment comics which was often more serious work. His lifetime production is huge and a lot of it is very commercial, but he has made some arthouse pieces for festivals and the like.
