The spread of Japanese manga across the globe has attracted intense attention and Manga Studies has developed as an international, multidisciplinary field that attracts scholars from a broad variety of areas of study, from the visual arts to linguistic fields and social sciences. The reality and potential of the image-text medium of manga endures, challenges, and fascinates us as both readers and scholars.
