A manga is more like a graphic novel than a comic book, though I don't see a reason to be so upset over something so blatantly silly.

Manga are Comic Books I'm going have to side with LosingOrbit, It's just a different way of calling something, notthing serious. I think it's fine to communicate manga with words such as, graphic novels, comic books, tankōbons, Japanese comics, books, BD (Bandes dessinées), and etc.
If we want to look at it more closely the Japanese word for "comic" is "manga"

edit: added Japanese comic

I like to think of it like this: tt's a comic when it's a single chapter or issue, it's a graphic novel when it's in bulk form (tankobon)
but then again, the terminology is trivial

anyway

Manga translates as comic
Anime translates as animation; animated

some people don't know any better.

when I grabbed my first issue of Ranma 1/2 over 15 years ago, I sure as hell didn't know to call it manga!

Maybe if we look up the dictionaries and all, manga and comics are basically the same. They're part of the big family I guess, but I think there's something we've missed. In my opinion, manga has been redefined as Japanese graphical novels while comic books still retain its original meaning, or at least that's how I view them both. By original, I mean comedy artwork in the form of comic strips.

Manga and anime refer to comics and animation in an umbrella term. The proper usage with the Japanese definitions would call even non-Japanese comics and animation/cartoons as such.
