There are important stylistic differences between manga and the comic books of the West. Mangaka will often employ several pages worth of elaborate drawings to express what Western comic artists would illustrate on a single page. This has lead to an enormously complex visual language.

Manga artists usually ignore neat, uniform panels in favor of creating exciting visual narratives that divide up the space of a page in inventive ways. Often times a single central image of action and text will overlap an entire page of diversely shaped panels!

Cover for "Gun Smith Cats"  (Vol.4)
