These books aren't "MANGA." They're normal western comics written by a western writer and illustrated by a Korean artist. MANGA refers to Japanese comics written and illustrated by Japanese creators. Tokyopop (a western company) likes to refer to everything they do as "MANGA" to try to confuse the kiddies (who love manga so much) into buying their books.
