aesthetic and philosophical This is why Japan is such a fascinating place its own history of explicitly barring foreign influence while completely absorbing Chinese culture a country that did not allow the importation of European books until the mid 1700s but that has now made the comic book it own wildly successful form Manga Manga is an excellent stand out book on the history of Japanese comics going way back to temple graffiti and traditional scroll paintings through the graphic efforts that emulated England s Punch magazine all they way up to all the disparate manga genres of today that yes indeed exemplify post modernism super hero school boys and the modernism super hero school boys and the lives of sushi chefs The text explains among other things how Japanese characters are used as a graphic element in Manga and Yukio Mishima s proud critiues of his country s Manga productions The BONUS is that the end of the book includes four very different styles of Manga translated into English So it s not just explication but entertainmen. Manga provides the background against which these other arts can be understood The book includes 96 pages from Osamu Tezuka's Phoenix Reiji Matsumoto's Ghost Warrior Riyoko Ikeda's The Rose of Versailles and Keiji Nakazawa's Barefoot Gen.

Or all those interested in Japanese comics It is virtually the bible from which all studies and appreciation of manga begins More than that given the influence of Japanese manga on animation and on American produced comics as well Manga. .
