Tezuka 70th Anniversary Exhibit

Ok, I'll admit it. I was pretty excited when I saw this ad in Tenmonkan. I grabbed a flier to take home and study more closely. On the surface, it looks like artwork being displayed to celebrate the first appearance of Atom Boy, 70 years ago. In fact, it's a scam featuring some artist I've never heard of before who's selling prints he's made of Atom Boy, Ashita no Joe (Chiba Tetsuya) and Kamen Rider (Ishinomori). The cheapest print is over $100 (USD), and some of them are priced at over $1,000. I may visit the pop-up shop this week, but no, this is a waste of money.
