Japanese manga got its start in 1959 when two magazines, ‘Weekly Shonen Sunday’ and Weekly Shonen Magazine’ were launched the same day. They were a big hit and provided initial fuel for the manga boom.
In Japan, the word “manga” simply means “comic.” But to the world, “manga” has come to be equated with the particular artistic style of comic creation originating in Japan, and has gained tremendous popularity around the globe.
The New Land
MANGA MELECH continues the drama of Abraham’s descendants right where MUTINY leaves off.
The people are a desperate band of wanderers, homeless and weary in an unforgiving desert. They march toward a new land rich with glowing fields of abundant harvests and dream of the peace and rest their new homes will provide. But they are their own worst enemies. Success will not come without pain and casualty.
Just when it seems their enemies will overtake them, one man rises from the humble fields to unite his nation in power and victory. He will become one of history’s greatest kings. But will he withstand the claws of evil in his own human heart?
MELECH follows MUTINY chronologically and is the fourth book in the MANGA MESSIAH series. This dramatic story of the people’s journey and conflict in the new land is presented by renowned manga-ka Ryo Azumi.
