Viz Originals

VIZ Originals is excited to return to Anime Expo and meet aspiring manga creators as part of the portfolio reviews! We have experienced editors who work directly with creators, both in the US, Japan, and more, to develop new and original manga-inspired stories. If you’re a creator inspired by manga techniques and would like feedback and guidance on your work, we would love to see samples of your sequential art that highlight dynamic paneling, skillful black-and-white artwork and compelling storytelling.
