Manga images surround us. The style has become so pervasive that sometimes we stop to consider the characters' origins and meaning;  without realizing that there is a rich language of storytelling lurking behind every manga graphic, as redolent in symbolism as a Renaissance masterpiece.

So, what is manga?

A form of storytelling that's what Manga is, and it relies heavily on visual elements, and from the serialized cartoon strips that first appeared in Japanese newspapers during the end of the 19th century is where it conforms to a more developed and broader style.

Just like comics and graphic novels, Manga stories are; read by all ages; and cover a vast range of genres, including adventures stories, romance, science fiction, and political commentary.
