“Why is manga viewed as better than comics?” #AskWednesday

I was going to make an #AskGi post, but I saw this question posted on Quora. I never even knew that there was this thing about manga or Japanese comics being viewed as better than American comics. So I checked out the first answer I saw and I was really impressed by the amount of info I got. Not saying one is better than the other–I’m not a credible source when it comes to that–but I learned from reading. That explained something about the movie (originally manga) I am Hero to me, with regards to the comics industry in Japan.

  1. I prefer comics since I grew up reading the superhero ones, a few Archie and our local ones when it was available.

    Seeing the angular forms of faces in manga & in some current cartoon series nowadays, looked too bland for me and it drove me off the wall. I do understand they were styled that way because of materials they were working on and the turnover these artists had to put a story out must be insanely fast. I still go for comics. 😀

    • I vote for the non-mangas as well, drawing-wise, because that’s what we grew up with. Plus, when mangas became popular here, I never really had time to read any of them.

      But when it comes to choosing my comics now, I do give every material equal chance. I am more for the story, anyway.
