Osamu Tezuka and Carl Barks were long-time friends. They began correspondance in the early 1940’s, giving Tezuka the inspiration to create his 1949 manga, Metropolis. Tezuka idolized Barks, his art style directly imitating his and Walt Disney’s.
Barks and Tezuka continued to be friends, exchanging letters, post cards, and ideas for comics until Tezuka died in 1989.
