The classic text by renowned manga expert in a beautiful new casebound edition, with a new foreword and afterword by the author.
 
Price : US$29.95
 
ISBN: 978-1-933330-95-2
376 pp, hardcover, 6 x 9", color and b/w photographs and illustrations throughout


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 greater 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

Description

This landmark book, first published at the height of the manga boom, is now offered in a hardcover collector's edition with a new foreword and afterword. Frederik L. Schodt looks at the classic publications and artists who created modern manga, including the magazines Big Comics and Morning, and artists like Suehiro Maruo and Shigeru Mizuki, and an entire chapter is devoted to Osamu Tezuka. The new afterword shows how manga have evolved in the past decade to transform global visual culture.

Frederik L. Schodt lives in San Francisco and is a translator and author of numerous books about Japan, including Manga! Manga! and The Astro Boy Essays. He often served as "God of Manga" Osamu Tezuka’s English interpreter.
