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 copy readers get their insights and feelings about the development for every character.
Intended for a young adult audience, these manga adaptations are just as likely to be enjoyed in the reader’s free time as in the classroom. The gripping and intense story and the lush artwork will place them easily alongside today’s bestselling popular manga, with strong and accurate adaptations that will please even the toughest teacher or librarian. Manga Classics are also a wonderful way for adult readers to rediscover their favorite classics, or experience them for the first time.
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.
