Manga Outnumbers American Comics at the Beguiling

Christopher Butcher documents a significant turning point at the Beguiling comic shop (after caveats):

the easy math is right there in front of me: 63 new manga (removing the Kingdom Hearts Box Set) to 62 new comic books (removing all of the variants) is indicative of a comics industry that, quite frankly, I never thought I’d see in my lifetime.

Now, the Beguiling may be a special case — manga is an active product line for them, and they have an expert stocking and selling it — but dang, I have to visit this store some time!

  1. Wow! 63 new manga.. incredible! And I thought the huge Borders in Columbus, Ohio had a ton of manga! Well, I guess I was wrong…
