Four profiles

Time profiles Paul Hornschemeier, Marjane Satrapi, Rieko Saibara and Joann Sfar here.

After her series about losing $500,000 in illegal mah-jongg became a hit, she went on to cultivate her personal style of manga (the Japanese term for comics), which now has many imitators. Says Saibara: "People who can draw well are too proud to do anything, and many of them are still starving artists."

Cover to "Bokunchi" by Rieko Saibara.
