Read full description of the books Dark Angel: Book Two:New from CPM Manga! The finest fantasy adventure manga series created by one of Japan's top manga artists continues in the second exciting volume of Dark Angel! Kia Asamiya has been called "The Picasso of Japan" by Wizard magazine, and he proves once again in Dark Angel Book Two that he is not only a fantastic artist with huge international appeal, but one of the great dramatic storytellers in comics anywhere! Dark is a young swordsman who has succeeded to the title of Phantom Saint, and must prove himself on a quest aided by his spirit guide, the beautiful and diminutive spirit Kyo. In Book Two, Dark faces the three great challenges that will confirm him as a Phantom Saint: a skilled human martial opponent, a magical demon, and a rite of passage in the Underworld. Original story and art by manga superstar KIA ASAMIYA (Star Wars: The Phantom Menace, Nadesico)
Read information about the authorKia Asamiya(麻宮 騎亜, born in 1963) is the pen-name of a popular Japanese manga artist whose work spans multiple genres and appeals to diverse audiences (1990s).
He is well-known for using influences from American comics, television, and movies in his work, and describes himself as a big fan of both Batman and Star Wars. One of the most widely-published Japanese manga-ka, nearly all of his stories have been translated into other languages, including English. His two most successful and popular manga series to-date are Nadesico and Silent Möbius.
Prior to becoming a manga artist, Asamiya graduated from the Tokyo Designer School, and then worked as a character designer for a number of anime series, and even designed models for some of the later Godzilla movies (1980s). For this career, he used a different pen-name, Michitaka Kikuchi (菊地 道隆), and maintained the two professional identities separately for many years. Several of the anime series that he worked on were very popular both inside and outside of Japan, most notably including Sonic Soldier Borgman. Even after focusing primarily on his manga career, Asamiya continued to do character designs and creative consultation on anime series based on his stories, occasionally under the Kikuchi name.
In the early 2000s, Asamiya has shifted his focus from teenage and young-adult stories to stories designed for children and for an American audience. In the former case, he credits his young children as a motivation, but in the latter case, he points to a long-standing desire to work with his favorite American characters. To that end, he has worked on projects with Image Comics, Marvel Comics, and DC Comics, as well as developing a manga adaptation of the movie, "Star Wars: The Phantom Menace".
While many Japanese artists (and artists in general) are quite reclusive, Asamiya often makes an effort to be available to his fans. He maintains a website with news and information about his studio, Studio TRON (named after the Disney movie TRON). He also aids and assists his Official Fan Club by sending them regular announcements and limited-edition merchandise. Despite these actions, he shunned all public photography, and had the often-hilarious habit of depicting himself with a placeholder sign for a face. It has become a trademark feature of his books that instead of a picture of the artist, there is an elaborately decorated rectangle sporting the words "Now Printing".
