Manga: More Diverse and Stronger Than Ever
The English-language manga industry is back, with nearly one of every two graphic novels sold in the United States coming from Japan. But compared to the last manga boom, readers today are more diverse, and the material being published is varied to match. General manager Naho Yamada and print publishing director Ben Applegate from Kodansha Comics and marketing director Tomo Tran of Vertical Comics will guide you through how to ride the new manga wave, from superhero tales that outsell Batman to sophisticated stories for girls, boys, and adults. Whether you’re building your first manga section or have long understood manga’s power to attract young and/or reluctant readers, this is for you!
