Seriously: manga, comics, or did you not give one of them a chance before?

To all of you who say "Japanese people just draw better", as an American illustrator, I have to say *middle finger*. At least Western schools make you learn anatomy and get a degree for illustration and comics before getting worked in the major comic companies. In Japan, they'll pick up any solicited manga drawn by some high school student, if they think it will sell. Seriously, show manga artwork to a life drawing professor and see what kind of face they make. A good third of the mangaka are so off in anatomy for big name publication that it baffles the Western school and gets negative respect points at portfolio reviews. Fifteen years ago, the advisory was, "Don't put Disney type cartoons in your portfolio if you want the best marks". Now it's, "Don't put anime/manga type drawings in your portfolio."

I also have to add this: picking up a single issue of Superman, mid story-arch and saying "Oh, it looks just like the same old superhero crap. Now where's Naruto?" is NOT really giving comics a chance. 300 is a comic, and it's not superheroes. Sandman is a comic, and it's not superheros. Sandman even got two spin off "American manga" published.

I've never read any western comics, so I don't know, but they just don't seem as interesting as manga. I've definitely never been interested in the whole super hero thing, although I know western comics aren't all about that. I also have to say I like the manga style of drawing a lot more than the western style.
