wow. people talk like only america has superhero stuff. there's more than supers to american comics. at any rate, it's not like anime and manga don't have their fair share of superhero characters. oh, wait. i apologize. that would be mahō shōnen and mahō shōjo characters....

Wow. Learn to read? Really? Raptor never accused you of telling people to shut up. He just said if you WANTED people to shut up you could just lock the thread.

I think your belief that they are making fun of you is in error. Myself, I don't care if they are called comic books. I usually buy them from a comic book store. What honestly irks me much more greatly is people who deliberately massacre the Queen's English due to laziness. Are the the two extra keystrokes needed to spell 'You' correctly really that much of a burden?

Regardless of the above I can -somewhat- relate to being angry at people who don't seem to get it. It IS annoying when you're talking about reasonably complex and mature anime drama and someone says "Oh that's like that pokemon stuff. " It would be the same as talking Schindler's list and have someone compare to a cheesey made for TV comedy because they're both movies.

Most people are reasonable and understanding if you explain that however. Those who persist in being ignorant, you can write off as nimrods not worth your time.

But honestly, As you presented it above I can't agree with you.

They aren't Idiots. and they're not mocking you. What makes it irritating to you are your own value judgements. You believe that Manga is something Inately superior to whatever you think a 'comic' is. Ergo someone calling your great art, a comic, sounds like an insult to you. But that's YOU. You are the one making the value judgement that makes 'comic' sound like an insult to your ears. You need to get over yourself and take a deep breath.

Agreed and its not just that its that it seems people think "comics" are less good. Its a matter of opinion for example I love "Manga" but there are some "comics" that have had more of an impact on me than any "manga" probably will.

I don't find it upsetting...they have mangas and comic basically the same style of book...Superhero comics are big here in north america so if a person don't know what a manga is they will call it a comic...I use to own the archy or archie series i loved those comics when i was younger but now i only read mangas and i use to call manga comics for a while to...not anymore...

I wouldn't have been IN the comic store to buy my first manga if it weren't for comic books. I grew up during a time when NA comic authors were really trying to shake their 'Kid Stuff' image and throwing "Comics Code Approved" into the dustbin. Prior to that aforementioned policy of censorship and bowdlerization there were all sorts of dramatic and powerful products produced by the North American Market. Many of EC's titles come to mind. "The Spirit" (no! not that craptastic movie that probably had Will Eisner spinning in his grave) earned It's creater such fame that they named some prestigious comic book awards after him.

My point being. Comic Book is not an insult in my book. The fact that Manga Snobs think it is... THAT is insulting.
