In the context of the National Strategy for Readership, the community of graphic storytellers contributes with activities of promotion about the different genres of graphic storytelling that stand as one of the most important mechanisms for reading development and with a long tradition in our country: comic books.

In it we consider manga, Japanese comic books or in Japanese style made in Mexico, that today stands as one of the most important forms to approach youths to reading.

With the objective of contributing to understand this cultural phenomenon, Elena Garro Cultural Center invites to approach manga, its history, its genres, the publishing houses that spread it in Mexico, and some of its cultural derivates.
