Mangaka (漫画家?) is the Japanese word for a comic artist or cartoonist.
The -ka (家) suffix implies a degree of expertise and traditional authorship. For example, this term would not be applied to a writer creating a story which is then handed over to a manga artist for drawing. The Japanese term for such a writer of comics is gensaku-sha. The term geijutsuka is also commonly used for manga-kas. The phrase means "artist" in the literal.
