My encounter with manga 9

When I was in the 3rd grade of elementary school, I discovered Renaissance artwork, that was handed out to students in schools in compilation textbooks.It didn’t have the same sort type of impact as manga, but had a much larger god like image to it. In particular I was fascinated by Michael Angelo in those books. From my retrospective, Michelangelos art had some similar image to manga because he put great emphasis on the physical characteristics of the human body, in a way that was like manga but made with more passion and looked less cheap…

I knew myself from just looking at the artwork that it was more important than some manga in a bookstore.

From the point of view of a kid, it was awesome to look at the highly detailed artwork that emphasized on muscle, it grabbed my attention greater than a page of manga.

Now I am beginning to wonder if American comic artists of the golden age of comics also liked the work of Michael Angelo, since their depiction of heroic characters looked similar to Michelangelos drawings.
