Kids' Art Haus Cinema - MANGA Month - The *Real* Origins of Manga

In the screening room Angus has discovered a 22 min video done by 2022 Eisner award winning author Eike Exner on the real origins of Manga in support of his award winning book 'Comics and the Origins of Manga: A Revisionist History'. This is an amazing reveal of the true origins of Manga and draws upon the common ground that western comics and Manga came from. From the author Eike Exner: "I spent several years in Japan researching the history and origins of manga and found out that the dominant narrative is mostly nonsense."
