Graphic Novels, Manga, and Anime – a brief description


“Graphic Novels are books where the story is told through visual art and pictures, covering such diverse subjects as superheroes, comics and literary stories.

Manga are Japanese comic books and most are read from right to left, often with quirky characters and subjects.

Anime are Japanese cartoons and many are adapted from Manga such as Astro Boy and Dragon Ball Z, but there are also feature length movies like Spirited Away.”
