Comic History Part 9

August 2007

This is the final part of my history of comics notes. These notes cover chapter nine of Roger Sabin's 'Comics, Comix and Graphic Novels: A History of Comic Art' which discusses comics in Europe and Japan.

The amazing thing about this chapter is that it shows how far behind the potential of words and pictures the west is compared to the Japanese. Manga is used for so many things, for learning accountancy, for fixing your car, for making a meal, for porn, for so many parts of life. Are they doing it well? I don't know because we only get to see what has been translated and exported.
