Manga Classics are faithful adaptations of classic literature created by artists who have a genuine passion for the story they have produced. In the back of each Manga Classic, you get their insights and feelings about the development for every character.
The market for manga (Japanese comics) has exploded in North America over the past few years. There is a greater awareness of manga amongst retailers, readers, and educators than ever before. Librarians are reporting that manga titles are generating record levels of circulation- more than any other category in the library. Not only does the manga format create a greater appeal of classic literature for a new generation but it also provides context making the story even more accessible. By bringing a manga approach to these iconic stories, Manga Classics is introducing a whole new generation to the joys of classic literature!
