Diamond Comic Distributors has published an interview with Dark Horse Comics manga editor Carl Gustav Horn.
In the interview, Horn noted that the manga Ohikkoshi — a one-volume romantic comedy by Blade of the Immortal's Hiroaki Samura — has suffered from "disappointing sales." Horn also stated that Satsuma Gishiden, The Kurosagi Corpse Delivery Service, and Eden: It's an Endless World have not sold as well as they deserve; he mentioned these points in previous interviews and at convention panels.
At the end of the interview Horn states that he defined manga as materials created for a Japanese audience instead of an American one. He also notes that Kazuki Takahashi, the creator of the Yu-Gi-Oh! manga, is a fan of Mike Mignola, creator of the American comic Hellboy, while Battle Angel Alita creator Yukito Kishiro is a fan of Sin City and 300 comics creator Frank Miller.
Horn previously worked at Viz Media before joining Dark Horse in 2004.
