The business journal Anime Busience has scored another coup with its cover art for its spring 2014 issue, landing a gorgeous image of Osamu Tezuka’s Astro Boy drawn by none other than Akira creator Katsuhiro Otomo.

The magazine’s two previous issues have featured a Space Battleship Yamato cover by by Evangelion creator Hideaki Anno and an Akira cover by Evangelion character designer Yushiyuki Sadamoto.

Check out Otomo’s full cover image after the jump!

The magazine’s new issue includes articles about the PlayStation 4, video game adaptations of anime, smartphones, and anime studio Trigger. It also includes interviews with Keiichi Hara, Shinji Higuchi, Mamoru Hosoda, Gen Urobuchi and Dai Sata.

Otomo’s new movie, Short Peace, will be released in North American theaters in April.
