Back in the old days, Japanese manga and some comics and books were in black & white. But due to slumps in sales and people switching to e-readers for their cartoon-fix….
Many manga artist are shelling out their own yen and going color.
For the first time, manga is going in color.
Turning black & white into color is nothing new by the way.
It’s not just comic books going into color.
Thanks in part to technology, many black & white shows & movies are getting the color treatment.
An underground movement had been turning black & white into color since the 2000s.
Manga is being ‘read’ like a movie.
Vcomics/Vmangas are a hit on YouTube.
The Vcomics are read by actors and actresses and recorded to fit the story. Sound effects are added. In a few months of editing, the Vcomic is ready for the market.
2013 will be a high demand for Vcomics/Vmanga. As well as colorized manga.
As of now, artist have refused to go along with the change. It’s unlikely that we might see a Vcomic or a color manga anytime soon.
That includes bilingual comics.
If you want to see and of the new wave-style comics mentioned in this post…. I have YouTube.com on my link.

Go for broke!
