Breakout: Global Manga [from the 8 Aug charts]

filed under , 12 August 2010, 04:12 by

The second-to-last sort code introduced into the database is Global Manga.

For the most part this is OEL, non-manga but that is marketed to the newbs as manga and in the same trim size, shelved alongside the ‘real’ manga and oh-gods-more-cat-sorta-manga-I-think-I’m-gonna-hurl…

Ah yes, but in the process I also rediscovered the Tokyopop Original German Manga titles, some Taiwanese stuff, Viz’s 1 World Manga, DrMaster’s manhua, plus offerings from Dark Horse, Seven Seas, Yen Press, Scholastic, HNA Amulet, HarperCollins — you know, there’s a lot of stuff here.

In my head, I sound like Yahtzee (quite a feat, given my inherited U.S.-flat-midwestern-accent.)

where I start my browsing day...

...and one source I trust for reviews, reports, and opinion on manga specifically. [disclaimer: I'm a contributor there]
