Adult Manga: Culture and Power in Contemporary Japanese Society
Adult Manga looks at the rise and fall of Japan's mammoth comic industry since the 1960s. In this stimulating and refreshing history of the manga industry, Kinsella documents the structure and history of manga, probes into its related subculture and the anti-nerd otaku panic, and examines the difficult and fascinating relationship between the artists and editors who create manga.
