Manga! Manga! Main Page -- Oniko Goes To Japan Main Page
In Japan, it is most often the same creator who both writes a story and illustrates it, thus the reason I keep saying creator or maker when I refer to Japanese manga, rather than artist or writer which are distinctions that work when talking about most American comic books. Almost all of the people who create manga are kept fantastically busy; could you write and draw forty to fifty pages of story every week and still keep it interesting?
Below are a few of the manga makers that have caught my attention, and that I think are worth a little of yours.
