Manga, the Japanese word for Comics, are a multi-faceted phenomenon in Japan. They range across the spectrum of interests and age groups, covering such diverse subjects as Buddhist sages, warrior robots, romance, spacemen, humanised animals, even Mr. Nobody, at the office.

In this first book ever to deal with the subject for western audiences, Frederik L. Schodt takes us through the various styles in eight fully illustrated chapters. These include A Thousand Years Of Manga, The Spirit Of Japan, Flowers & Dreams, Regulation versus Fantasy, plus The Comic Industry. This edition includes an eight-page full colour section, plus 96 pages of B&W Comics from Osamu Tezuka, who supplies the introduction. This first print edition is offered here, in highly collectable edition.

First print, attractive, VF+. Dust wrapper, spine faded, minor edge creases, light scores to cover, FN/ VF.
