To the surprise of many in the publishing world, manga has become much more than a passing fad. Several major U.S. publishing houses now have dedicated manga imprints or programs. All told, nearly 700 titles were released in 2003 and upwards of 1,000 titles are expected to release by the end of 2004.

The Complete Idiot's Guide to Drawing Manga Illustrated is positioned to ride the coattails of the manga phenomenon by teaching those who have fallen in love with the format how to create their own manga characters and stories, stroke by stroke. From bodies and faces to the nuts and bolts of 'mech' (manga for anything mechanical), readers will learn all the basics necessary to start rendering the exotic worlds and creative characters that attracted them to manga as readers. More than 200 illustrations and an eye-popping colour insert will show readers exactly how to draw everything from heroes and heroines to weapons, vehicles, and story backgrounds.
