You'll Love This If:

- You are an aspiring writer and graphic novelist who want to trying your hand at writing the dialogue for a story
Manga, the Japanese comic book, has become a runaway success in the United States. Fans are fanatical about their favorite series and characters. But beyond the content, they are fans of the style itself. How-To books on drawing in a manga style are flying off the shelves as people try to make their own comics.
But what if you can’t draw? What if you want the satisfaction of making a story like you favorite manga or anime, but you just don’t have the time?
MAKE YOUR OWN MANGA gives buyers a chance to make their own stories in their favorite style. It’s quick, easy, and creative. They can just fill in the word balloons with whatever they want, and beautiful illustrations suddenly have meaning. Readers (and writers) are limited only by their imagination.
With five popular artists and 15 distinctive stories, there’s fun for everyone, whether you’re a fan of Naruto or Fruit Basket.
