Japanese Site Ranks Manga with the Best Art

Japanese Site Ranks Manga with the Best ArtThere’s manga with great storytelling—then there’s manga with great storytelling and great art. With all due respect to all the manga artists pumping out pages week after week, some are just, well, better than others.

Japanese site Magmix has just put out an article listing five of the best-illustrated manga out there. The list, in no certain order, goes something like this:

Takehiko Inoue
1998-present (hiatus since 2015)

Kentaro Miura
1989-present (intermittent)

Masakazu Katsura

One Punch Man
Illustrated by Yusuke Murata

Katsuhiro Otomo

Hard to argue with any of these. At the same time, all that visual greatness can come with a price: Vagabond and Berserk, in particular, are known for their snail’s pace.

What are your picks for the manga with the best art?
