Manga comes to Milwaukee Journal Sentinel

The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel becomes the third major newspaper to run with TokyoPop a manga stlye comic strip.

They’re the characters in a comic strip – TokyoPop – that will run Sundays starting Jan. 8 in the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. It will alternate between “Peach Fuzz,” running for 24 straight weeks, and “Van Von Hunter,” for the rest of 2006.

And if the strips seem a bit, um, different from the usual comic page denizens, that’s because they are.

Both newcomers fall under the category of manga. It’s the Japanese word for “comics,” and it’s a style that’s taking over the graphics world.
