Zy Toys (ZCWO) Black Jack

Black Jack (Burakku Jakku) is a fictional character created by Osamu Tezuka, introduced in Weekly Sh┼Źnen Champion on November 19, 1973.

Black Jack is a medical mercenary, selling his skills to the highest bidder. He is a shadowy figure, with a black cape, eerie black-and-white hair, and stitched-up scars worming all over his body with the most prominent being across his face. Black Jack cures patients indiscriminately, from common folk, to presidents, to yakuza leaders, though he charges all of his patients absurdly high sums.

Black Jack is one of Tezuka's most beloved characters and its popularity is rivaled only by Astro Boy.
