Moving on from my graphic novels post earlier in the year, I am now looking for some manga and other graphic novels to start a new collection for students in our arts library. This time the focus is more on the art/ drawing than story.

I would appreciate any suggestions for manga suitable for 16-18 year olds and any graphic novels or names of artists that might be suitable.

I've got a lovely graphic novel of the hobbit somewhere which is beautifully illustrated - it's quite a different style to everything else I've seen. I'll have a look - Matt and I have quite a collection lying around in various places, though not much manga specifically

To go with my two favourites...

Masamune Shirow - Appleseed, Black Magic M66, Dominion. Shirow's work tends to be very precise and carefully thought out and contains a lot of philosophy and comedy amongst the action.

Hayao Miyazaki - The original manga version of Nausicaa is a much longer story than the film and written and illustrated by Miyazaki working alone. Beautifully drawn and a very moving story.

Hope this helps

We already have Nausicca on what i think was your recommendation when I bought the first round of graphic novels.

I shall have a look at the others.

The Hobbit is also something i think we already have, but other suggestions always welcome.
