Rumor Mill Stuff

We have followed the explosion of manga in the publishing industry with great interest*. While we love jumping on bandwagons as much as the next person, we wondered how much manga the market could sustain (also, we wondered how the word was spreading — Jill Monroe, also known as our correspondent in Oklahoma, has recently peppered us with questions along the lines of “just what is this manga thing” and “do I need to get a shot for it?”).

All of this wondering is our justification for perpetuating a rumor we encountered on FishbowlLA — were there really layoffs at TokyoPop and what does that mean?

* – No, not just because we like books with pictures.
