Love Manga Muses on Tokyopop Story

Here's a long, self-reflective post from David Taylor about last week's Tokyopop story that proves reasonably interesting as a look at how such a story breaks and is reported, including the role of rumors and opinion-makers. I don't buy the subtle assertion that this was perhaps not a story -- it's 1/10th of a major company's workforce, including at least one name employee -- nor do I think speculation is off-limits when it comes to a company in Tokyopop's unique market position, but it's interesting to hear another side at least given some credence.

In an unrelated post Taylor recommends this interview with Dark Horse's Philip Simon on Dark Horse's manga program, which is worth noting as I really don't recall Dark Horse editors doing a lot of interviews.
