“The informally encyclopedic Dreamland Japan—the result of Schodt's 16-plus years of studying manga—not only makes it easier to understand the art form but also says a good deal about Japanese culture
this is an authoritative reference of the different categories of manga, popular titles and publishers.”
“The definitive survey of the Japanese comic book mindscape...”
—Alvin Lu, The San Francisco Bay Guardian
"Schodt gives readers a sense that manga is a vast ocean in Japan with genres undreamed of in American comics. Dreamland Japan is recommended for all comic fans—not just for the historical information, but because Japan has truly understood that comics are only limited by our imagination."
—Ed Sizemore, MangaWorthReading.com
"No one knows more about this world and conveys it with such warmth and unpretentious insight than Frederik L. Schodt, and the timing of this collector’s edition is ideal: as Schodt notes in his new afterword, manga, Japan, and those of us interested in both are undergoing radical transformations. Luckily, we have this kick-ass book to guide us."
—Roland Kelts, author of Japanamerica: How Japanese Pop Culture Has Invaded the US
