Comic books have been the favorites of many and have always remained on our bookshelf for the past many years. They are read by all including kids, adults etc. Action comics are generally more popular and hundreds of copies of such action books are sold every day in the market. The most important part in an action comic book is its illustrations. These are well defined and completely descriptive of the situations. These entertaining action comic books are more regional based with the incorporations of the elements of cultures in it. Every comic story has its own heroes and twists in its stories.
Manga is a globally famous genre of Japanese action comics. It is read by each and every citizen of Japan from laborers to businessmen, students to professionals etc. It is said that it is being published for over past more than 50 years. The popularity of comics has also reached other countries like U.S. in the past decade.
Manga is a Japanese word which means Whimsical pictures. It is also known by the name “Komikku”. It was originally a special cartoon art style which later developed back in 1870. Today, it consists of stories and cartoon printed for explanation. You can read manga in varieties of subjects such as comedy, horror, mystery, action, drama, fantasy etc. It started with a very small and meager market share which arose to over more than $ 3 billion today.
Parents make children to read manga. Everyone from youth to kids to adults loves to watch and read manga characters in their unique roles of fighting and facing new tough scenarios of life through graphical pictures. With such huge fan following, there are investors who invest their money in this business Moreover, keeping the requirements of the industry in mind, there are increasing numbers of cartoon artists who are learning to illustrate and draw manga characters. This is very difficult to learn as it requires the use of sharper tools to sketch the twirling and floating long hair of the characters. This takes place in every scenario including fighting. Physical appearances and personality characteristics have to illustrate clearly. Proper attention is given to their accessories and attires which play an important role in distinguishing one character from other as all of them look similar from their facial looks.
Thus, Manga has become a heritage of Japan. It has completely revolutionized the entire comics industry globally.

Elfia Haarzuilen 2014 saturday 19 april 2014
Every year in April since 2001, the substantial number of 25,000 people from all over Europe come to the largest Fantasy event on the European continent: the Elfia.
Two-third of the visitors have transformed into orcs, magicians, dragons, knights, vampires, elves, unicorns, gothic lolita, manga comic hero or a combination of these. Every year the costumes are getting more resourceful and more artistic. In the midst of the budding nature of the Castle park which belongs to the largest castle of the Netherlands – Kasteel de Haar fantasy lovers indulge themselves in all that is offered and coveted: medieval music, dancing, lectures, theatre plays, and parades.
Sinds 2001 komen elk jaar in april een groeiend aantal mensen uit heel Europa op de Elfia editie Haarzuilens naar het grootste fantasy evenement dat op het Europese continent georganiseerd wordt: de Elf Fantasy Fair.
Tweederde van deze bezoekers hebben zichzelf omgetoverd tot orc, tovenaar, draak, ridder, vampier, elf, eenhoorn, gothic lolita, manga stripheld of een combinatie daarvan. De kostuums worden elk jaar steeds vindingrijker en kunstzinniger. Temidden van de opbloeiende natuur van het kasteelpark, dat behoort tot het grootste kasteel van Nederland, Kasteel de Haar, dompelen de fantasy liefhebbers zich onder in een aangenaam bad van middeleeuwse muziek, dans, lezingen, theatervoorstellingen en optochten.
