Some Say The Market Ends In Fire…

imageCalvin Reid checks in with a report on three Korean manwha publishers joining together for a Viz-like effort called Studio ICE with an eye on selling translated works to an America audience. It's a nicely written, concise article and I'd be doing Reid a disservice by simply repeating his points here and then saying I'm blogging about it. An element that Reid doesn't bring up is that a devoted manwha publisher might provide an entry point for pre-existing comics reading audiences of all types, not just the bigger, harder to define audience that has been driving manga sales. Admittedly, that's probably not enough of an audience to sustain such an effort.
