“I want to see my name in lights”
As many people know, Osamu Tezuka was a huge fan of the theatre. So, it should really come as no surprise that he would sneak in a little hommage to the lights of (off) Broadway now and then. For sharp-eyed readers may spot one of these in the background in Melody of Iron (1974-75).
Almost makes you wish there really was a stage play of Phoenix (1967-88).
