I am looking for European manga authors for the sake of a study, not a reading recommendation. I am currently investigating the European arts market.

How can I find out this information?

  • Unfortunately, yes, the question would still breach community guidelines even if you're not looking for a reading recommendation. I'm not sure where else you'd be able to ask this, but you can discuss that on our Meta site. I'll flag this to be migrated to Meta, and hopefully someone there can provide you with a solution.

    While the intent is irrelevant (whether it's for study or not), I think I understood what you're trying to find. I reworded the question so that hopefully it's still within the site scope. Feel free to edit and add more detail of what you're trying to find, or roll back if the edit was incorrect. For the starter, you might be interested in our canonical Q&A for What databases and listing sites exist for anime, manga, etc? to check if some of them are helpful.

  • Could you perhaps specify what you mean by European manga authors? Are you looking for information on Europeans that work/create manga from Europe for Japanese studios? Or European studio's producing such works? Perhaps something else all together?

  • Hello, and apologies for the late answer. I mean European authors who publish their work from Europe. Whether the publisher is European or Japanese, it really does not mater. Thank you for your help so far!

The anime database aniSearch also features manga and includes countries outside of Asia.

Filtered for France as country of origin

You can filter for other countries by going to Search Filter>Basics>Country of Origin.

Information about the author isn't always present, though. But you can research the information and add it to the database.
