DISCOVERING MANGA:
SECRETS OF JAPANESE COMICS


Manga, Manga, everywhere! Invading bookshops, libraries and art galleries. Turning up as television shows and films in live action and animation. Manga can appeal to every age and interest and sell in their millions. So how have comics become so massive in Japan and why are they spreading like wildfire around the world? For the first time, Paul Gravett, the author of the NEO Award-winning book Manga: 60 Years of Japanese Comics, reveals the secrets behind their most dazzling creators and characters. How do you read manga and enjoy them at their fullest? What gives these stories such power? What’s a good book to start with? Whether you are new to the subject or a serious otaku, this is a fascinating multi-media presentation for everyone to enjoy.
