Marvel Comics has expounded on their comment that they would be using Japanese style comics to appeal to teenage girls.

Asked about his recent comments to Newsarama's; Mike Sangiacomo about publishing 'Japanese-style comics that would appeal to teenage girls, Bill Jemas responded, "Joe [Quesada] and I spent some time on this one. We are going to do comic books that focus on the teen girl market. We haven't figured out yet what attracts teenagers first - the storytelling approach, or the artistic approach.
"Our initial reaction is that it's the way the story is told, not the particular art style.
"We do have a top notch to-be-announced creative team working on a teen soap opera kind of book."

Marvel's forray into what they described as a manga style release began this week. The black and white "US War Machine" will ship weekly for three months at $1.50 per issue with a collected edition shipping soon after its release.
