Here comes the new breed! This is a full-length anthology of best new manga, by the brightest young talents in the field. Bursting with energy and imagination, this collection features the most exciting new work by western manga-ka - Japanese style comics being produced by western artists. Contributors include promising stars like Michiru Morikawa, winner of the Grand Prize of the International Manga and Anime Festival, Selina Dean and Asia Alfasi, as well as established names such as Andi Watson and Craig Conlan. Over 500 pages long, the anthology showcases more than fifteen new stories, complete and unabridged. Many expand on the limited popular conception of 'big-eyed' manga in original and unexpected ways - home-grown stories that speak directly to western audiences. The collection follows the format of the benchmark annual "Mammoth" anthologies of science fiction and horror, and includes a brief introduction to each contributor.
