They actually aren't. Comics are more expensive / have better quality paper. But because of that there are more manga than comics which leads to more diverse types of stories. (Although 99% of manga has a terrible protaganist)

Because of bias and personal opinion.

They aren't. You may like them more but that doesn't make them better.

1 : They're much less familiar therefore much more appeal than the comics.
2 : Overall they feel much more mature than comics and manga has Seinen.
3 : A much wider range of genres in manga than in comics.

I might be talking through my hat since i havnt read that many US comics but those are the reasons in my opinion... Also, you'd be surprised at how much Japanese people love US comics.

The kind of comics i read are mostly from Belgium and France so my field of expertise when it comes to US comics is probably extremely reduced :P.

Claymore and Berserk are the best. I love blood gushing in buckets.

1) 90% of everything is ****, only 10% of anything is actually "good".

2) There are FAAAAAAAAAR more mangas around than comics.

3) We ignore the 90% of **** because why would we want to look at ****?

4) Comics are so short in numbers that you'll have to look at **** because there's almost no good comics around

Therefore....


5) 10% of the good mangas(the ones we notice) far outnumbers all the bad comics+very few good comics combined


solution: stop overpricing comics?

Claymore has actually failed to produce a nice follow up to the story... Most of the last 20 or-so chapters are chaotic and off the trails and the final chapter was a gigantic let down...

Berserk, on the other hand, is pure ****ing genius.

Best thing on paper ever.
