Manga! Manga! The World of Japanese Comics
By Frederik L. Schodt

Manga means 'comics" In Japanese. In Japan, mango are read by young and old and are a monster publishing phenomenon with annual sales in the billions of dollars. In the rest of the world, thanks to Japan's economic might, mango concepts are revolutionizing the toy, cartoon, and graphic design Industries. Mango can be fantastical and funny, or gritty and violent, with heroes as diverse as samurai, sushi chefs, mah jongg masters, teenagers' in low, and bored off Ice workers, to say nothing of anthropomorphic cats and warrior robots. As such, mango offer an entertaining and sometimes disturbing-window on Japanese society. Containing a historical overview, an examination of themes and artists, and over 200 Illustrations from Japanese comics magazines, this classic work remains an essential guide for anyone interested in the future of popular visual culture.
