Manga invades newspapers

Two Manga comic strips will be syndicated though Universal Press. Manga is a Japanese story-telling/drawing style that is becoming more and more popular in the United States.

“We thought if teens and young kids are reading manga, then why don’t we get something in the paper that teens want to read?” said John Glynn, vice president at Universal Press Syndicate, which distributes comics and columns globally to newspapers. “Newspapers are being seen as their parents’ medium.”

Some of the major papers that are adding Manga to their line up are: The Los Angeles Times, Denver Post, Vancouver Sun and Seattle Post-Intelligencer.
