About the course

The IADC Mangá course/module was developed to introduce the student to essential techniques and fundamentals for newcomers to the wonderful world of Sequential Art.

Mango  is the name of  stories  in  Japanese comics, where one of their characteristics is that they are  read from right to left, as opposed to conventional stories  in  western comics.

Its origin is linked to the Theater of Shadows, which in the feudal era traveled through several villages narrating legends through puppets. These legends began to be written on rolls of paper and illustrated, thus initiating the sequenced stories, and consequently the emergence of the  mango.  

The current configuration of  mango  was born at the beginning of the 20th century, influenced by Western commercial magazines and newspapers, coming from the United States and Europe, which brought humor, social and political satire, in comic strips.

THE  mango  addresses topics such as school life, work,  sports, love, war, fear, Japanese and Chinese literature, economics, finance, and much more.

THE  mango  is commonly classified according to its target audience. The stories that are created for the boys are called  shounen, and stories that aim to entertain girls are called  shoujo.
