Manga

In Japan and other parts of Asia, "manga" comic books are not only escapist entertainment but also a powerful and effective medium to educate a broad range of people on important topics like environmental conservation and food safety.

A symposium of international manga artists at the Ninth International Manga Summit brought together artists from nearly 20 countries. World-famous artists are known to manga fans in the United States, Europe and Asia, and artists from East Asia.

"The power of manga makes it easy for people around the world to understand complex issues like the environment and food safety," said Machiko Satonaka, whose manga often focus on issues of concern to women.

Ki Joun Park, a South Korean artist, said manga are used to educate people on subjects like how to reduce environmental damage when mountain climbing, and there are now some artists who focus entirely on environmental themes.

"A decade ago, Finnish cartoonists were primarily influenced by European and American comics. But these days, younger Finnish comic artists are increasingly influenced by Japanese manga styles," says Reima Makinen, a journalist with Anime, a Finnish-language magazine.
