If you’re unfamiliar with manga – Japanese-style comics – but are interested in sampling them, the bewildering array of options available may be putting you off. How could you possibly decide where to start? One option is to invest in an anthology like The Mammoth Book of Best New Manga, to get an insight into what’s new, without having to pay for a bookshelf full of titles.
This anthology features western artists working in the Japanese style, and includes 15 complete stories over 500 pages. Artists include Michiru Morikawa, Selina Dean, Asia Alfasi, Andi Watson and Craig Conlan.
