Comics pages make room for manga

USA Today has an write up about the growing popularity of Manga and the two newspapers (LA Times and Seattle Post) that now carry syndicated manga.

TOKYOPOP founder Stuart Levy acknowledges that manga is not yet as popular in the USA as it is in Japan, but he expects that will change soon.

“It’s like sushi,” he says from Japan. “There’s a pretty good chance everyone has heard of sushi.

“In a few years, everyone will know about manga.”
