Discover the secrets and legends of “The Art of Mana” from Dark Horse and Square Enix
While it may only be tangentially comics-related (the tangent being I read comics, and I’ve been playing Secret of Mana on my SNES Classic), the lovely-looking art book The Art of Mana from Darin Horse and Square Enix is well worth mentioning. The games in the Mana series have some of the most beautiful environments and interesting character designs of their day, so having over 400 of the original illustrations used in developing the games for just around d forty bucks is surely a steal. Check out the details below.
