Born in Hokkaido in 1955, Buichi Terasawa is noticed by Osamu TEZUKA and becomes the master’s assistant in 1976.

For the magazine Weekly Shônen Jump, he starts in 1978 the publication of his major work: Space Adventure Cobra. The comic is an absolute success where the artist can show all his creativity through futuristic and mysterious worlds, a mix of his many influences.

In the 80’s, Terasawa senses the potential of computer assisted illustration. In 1992, he publishes Takeru, one of the first comic (and first manga), entirely realised on a computer: an incredible feat at the time.

His works have been published in many countries and he sold more than 20 million manga. In France, several of his works have been published by isan manga
