Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
The art of Japanese cartooning called manga started on paper, then blossomed into anime, its animated form, on television, in movies, and on the Internet. From its Asian beginnings it has spread around the world. The Japanese quarterly Comickers Magazine is an authoritative guide, and from it came the first popular volume, Japanese Comickers. This second book showcases 12 Japanese, Korean, and Chinese rising stars in the field. Each profile includes a brief biography, an example of the artist's most representative work, and a pictorial gallery with detailed explanations of their individual techniques and materials, whether digital tools or more traditional media. Recommended for advanced cartoon and animation artists. Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.
