Manga beating out Marvel(tm)
Fang-Face writes "There is an interesting article entitled
U.S. Teenage Girls Prefer Japanese Heroes, by Grady Hendrix, Women's eNews, reposted to AlterNet.org's Wiretap. In it, Hendrix describes how "Shojo", manga for girls, is filling a void in the American comic book industry, which is still not developing the comic book market for girls. Hendrix focuses on the recent launch of Shojo Beat, writing that it is the manga equivalent of Harry Potter."
