Discover the marvellous world of Manga at Huyton Library

‘Make Mine Manga’ is a free exhibition at Huyton Library for anyone curious to discover more about Manga comics or graphic novels originating from Japan.

The exhibition has been specially created by Paul Gravett; the curator of comic exhibitions across the UK including the British Museum and the Barbican Centre and the author of numerous books about comics and their creators, including ‘Manga: 60 Years Of Japanese Comics’.

Visitors to the library can explore the origins of Manga and the creative techniques behind the art as well as discovering the wonder of Manga-Anime.

The exhibition features artwork by incredible creators from Japan and visitors can discover work from today’s generation of award-winning British talents making Manga in their own way as part of a truly global comic language.
