Themes & Issues in Asian Cartooning by Lent

Book Description

Today, comic art is the favorite reading fare for millions of Asians, and is a government-sanctioned, value-added product, as in the case of Korean and Japanese animation. Yet not much is known about Asian cartooning."Themes and Issues in Asian Cartooning" uses overviews and case studies by scholars to discuss Asian animation, humor magazines, gag cartoons, comic strips, and comic books. The first half of the book looks at contents and audiences of Malay humor magazines, cultural labor in Korean animation, the reception of Aladdin in Islamic Southeast Asia, and a Singaporean comic book as a reflection of that society s personality. Four other chapters treat gender and Asian comics, concentrating on Japanese anime and manga and Indian comic books."
