A COMICA REVIEW BY:

EUAN GILLESPIE


Euan Gillespie attended the Gravett & Stanbury presentation on Discovering Manga on 23 October 2008.

Really enjoyed the talk, and it touched on a lot of interesting structural differences with Western comics that I definitely need to delve into a bit further. Also plenty of food for thought in terms of fresh reading material ideas, which you can never really argue with!
