Drawn in styles ranging from the crudely vulgar to the highly refined, and covering every genre from naive romance to high-tech cybervisions, manga is a hot art form to debate. Dreamland Japan helps along the debate with a collection of thoughtful essays on the current state of the manga universe, and how it shapes our visual culture. Featured artists include Hinako Sugiura, King Terry, Yoshikazu Ebisu, Kazuichi Hanawa, Murasaki Yamada, Suehiro Maruo, Akira Narita, Shungicu Uchida, Shigeru Mizuki, Reiko Okano, Yuji Aoki, Yoshiharu Tsuge, Milk Morizono, Fujiko F. Fujio, Seiki Tsuchida. There are also discussions of the work of Osamu Tezuka and Hayao Miyazaki, plus features on important magazines like CoroCoro Comic, Jump, Big Comics, the avant-garde Garo, as well as the dojinshi phenomenon.
