Black Jack is a deeply shady character; a heavily-scarred and black-wearing unlicensed surgeon who charges extortionate fees, he cuts a sinister figure. Children fear him, and the medical establishment despises him. He lives on the edge of town, speaking to only a few people, and he comes and goes as he wishes. When a serious attempt is made on Black Jack's life, destroying his cliff-top residence in the process, Black Jack swings into action to find the culprit. His only clue is a faded sepia photograph, showing his mentor and benefactor, Dr. Honma, alongside other mystery figures. Traveling around the world and facing great dangers, Black Jack seeks to find out the truth behind the organization which wants him dead!
