“An eye-popping survey…, showing how Manga has influenced everything from advertising to movies like Kill Bill. Zap, wow, take that, Western literature!”

— The Globe & Mail, Toronto

Discover the latest and the greatest of Japan’s manga scene. This revised and updated edition features classic maestros like Osamu Tezuka (creator of Astro Boy) and Katsuhiro Otomo (creator of Akira) as well as the most exciting newcomers such as Hajime Isayama and, of course, their fictional superstars.

Through an A–Z directory, we discover the superstars—both human and fictional—of what is now a vast global industry, inspiring advertisers, filmmakers, creative professionals, millions of avid fans, not to mention an entire cosplay lifestyle, in which manga devotees in elaborate costume meet to celebrate the existence of their characters at huge conventions from Los Angeles to Leipzig.

From classic maestros—like Osamu Tezuka (creator of Astro Boy) and Katsuhiro Otomo(creator of Akira)—to newcomers such as Hajime Isayama, each entry includes biographical and bibliographical information, descriptions of main characters, and, of course, plenty of examples of the artist’s finest manga spreads and covers.
