Go, Read: Interview With Mike Kiley's straightforward chat with Tokyopop Publisher and Editor in Chief Mike Kiley should serve as a pretty good primer if you're unfamiliar with basic issues surrounding the successful company. Tokyopop's success has led, in part, to a reduction in ease of access to properties from Korea and Japan; at the same time, it's enjoyed better-than-expected success with photo-comics and original works that operate under their powerful brand. As a comedic bonus, Kiley gives a definition of manga that seems to last for 143 paragraphs, even though it ends up being not a bad one.
