MANGA: Sixty Years Of Japanese Comics

A Review By: The Rough Guide to Manga

The following review appeared in The Rough Guide to Manga by Jason S. Yadao, 2009.

A freelance journalist, curator, lecturer and broadcaster who has worked in comics publishing, Gravett offers a thematic look at manga and how it has evolved for different audience - boys, girls, men, women - as well as underground movements and manga’s growth into a major export and global influence. It’s a large-format full-colour book that makes use of excerpts from a wide range of manga to illustrate its points. Packed with full-colour illustrations, Gravett covers manga’s development in every area, from girls’ stuff to hentai.
