Curator Paul Gravett from the Barbican charts the manga style as it travels throughout Asia, detailing the changes in its defining myths and themes as it evolves into the multi-platform industry we see today. He tracks the genre from its roots in 19th-century Japan through to rapidly-growing branches in China and Korea, and pinpoints new blossoms in regions as far flung as Indonesia and Mongolia. The exhibition features Asian comic books, compilations, anthologies, graphic novels and original artworks from the following countries: Bangladesh, Bhutan, Cambodia, China, Hong Kong, India, Indonesia, Japan, Malaysia, Mongolia, North Korea, Philippines, Singapore, South Korea, Taiwan, Thailand, Tibet, Vietnam. It will be the joy of all the manga fans around the world. At Rome’s Palaexpo from 7 October 2017 to 21 January 2018.
