The "osamu moet moso" exhibit, aiming "to extract and embody Akiba-like elements contained in Osamu Tezuka’s works through the imaginations" of a host of artists, toured Japan in 2010, with art books made for doujinshi events.
Art books started being offered at doujinshi mega-event Comiket 79. A 1.5 version, featuring yuri/yaoi artist Lily Hoshino, was produced for Comiket 81. Shoujo artist Chinatsu Kurahana drew the cover for the book that also features art by Mine Yoshizaki (Sgt. Frog), Takashi Okazaki (Afro Samurai), and Haruhiko Mikimoto (Macross).
The version 2.0 Concept Book will be offered at Comiket 82. Mine Yoshizaki draws the cover and poster. Miwa Shirow (Dogs) draws another poster - featuring Alabaster - the sport star turned criminal who declares war on hypocrites. Yoshitoo Asari (Lucha Lucha Manga) draws Wonder 3 - about an alien rabbit, horse and duck deciding if humanity should be exterminated for the benifit of the larger universe. Sanami Suzuki (Black Rock Shooter - Innocent Soul) draws Tezuka's Three Eyed One and Dororo. Noizi Ito (illustrator on the Haruhi Suzumiya and Shakugan no Shana light novels) continues her involvement with osamu moet moso too.
Comiket 82 will also present a special Tezuka issue of shoujo magazine mainstay Lala.
