Another article -- this time, from Publishers Weekly -- talking about the rising interest in manga. Story is available at publishersweekly.reviewsnews.com.

A brief quote:

"The comics industry-publishers of traditional pamphlet comics-is being transformed by the sales growth of graphic novels (book-format comics) in general and by manga-licensed Japanese comics in English translation-in particular. While traditional comics publishers cite impressive sales growth resulting from a new focus on hardcovers and trade paper graphic novels, manga publishers use words like "phenomenal" to describe the popularity and sales potential of manga graphic novels and related material."
