Full Description:
   Critical Survey of Graphic Novels: Manga provides in-depth insight for over 55 of the most popular and studied manga graphic novels, ranging from metaseries to stand-alone books. A recent influx of translated Japanese manga into the American market has sparked a greater interest in foreign-language traditions and long-form comics storytelling. This single-volume subset focuses on translated works that have been particularly influential in the development of the manga tradition. Often defined by characteristics such as stylized line work, cultural-specific narratives and compelling storytelling that often stand in contrast to the character-centric framework of American comics, manga nonetheless encompasses a broad range of genres and subgenres. Researchers will gain a better understanding of the latter, which, in the manga tradition, is represented by a wide spectrum that includes josei manga, which targets a mature female audience; shoujo-ai manga, which focuses on the spiritual, sexual, or emotional aspects of relationships; shonen-ai, manga created by female authors that focuses on homoerotic or homoromantic male relationships; and kodomo manga, created exclusively for a young audience.
