Product description

Review

"For the last dozen years, comics enthusiasts have referred to Schodt's Manga! Manga! as 'the Bible on Japanese comics.' Now they will have to refer to Manga! Manga! as 'the Old Testament, ' because Dreamland Japan is now available as 'the New Testament, ' bringing Schodt's comprehensive scholarship on Japanese cartoon literature up to the present." -Fred Patten, animation and comics historian

From the Author

What DREAMLAND JAPAN is about
DREAMLAND JAPAN: WRITINGS ON MODERN MANGA is the product ofmy observing and writing about the manga industry in Japan over thelast sixteen years. Designed in a sort of "Whitman's sampler" ofcommentary and criticism, it can be read in small morsels or atone sitting. It's a personal and provocative collection of shortillustrated essays, with chapters on issues in modern manga,manga magazines, artists and their works, Osamu Tezuka, mangaand other media, and manga in the English-speaking world. This work is a sequel of sorts to my previous book, MANGA! MANGA! THE WORLD OF JAPANESE COMICS (1983), with MANGA! MANGA! providing the basic introduction to the history of manga in Japan and to the industry up to 1983, and DREAMLAND JAPAN being a more focused look at specific aspects of the medium today. Reading both books should hopefully give those interested in manga more than enough information to start pursuing the subject on their own! DREAMLAND JAPAN is 6 x 9 inches in size, with 360 pages (8 color pages, and nearly 100 B&W illustrations). Thanks!Frederik L. Schodt
