Stuart Ng Books is a favorite destination for artists in the entertainment industry. They focus solely on the areas of Illustration, Animation, and Comic Art. They carry a distinctive selection of sketchbooks by animators and comic book artists. Hard to find outside of conventions, they acquire their sketchbooks directly from the artists and ship them worldwide. They are the largest importer of French graphic novels in the United States. France has a thriving comics industry with some of the world’s best artists, yet less than one percent of French graphic novels are translated into English. They offer a hand-picked selection of bande dessinee chosen strictly for the graphic art and visual storytelling. 95% of their customers buying bande dessinee do not read French, they are that good!
