    Japanese comics are also called “manga”

    Panel 6 is very avatar worthy,

    I feel the best joke is in the title panel, though.

    So if today’s Nancy is influenced by Japanese comics, I tried reading it from right to left, and you know what? It was even dumber than if I had read it the American way!

    Shoulda had actual Japanese dialogue to complete the utter unreadability. ;D

    Good seeing the title panel — not included by my local newspaper. : )

    I think this was originally formatted as two tiers of 3 — it reads best in the order Panel 3-2-1-6-5-4. (Excluding the title, which is separate.)

    I think whoever laid this out for the web didn’t get it. This is what it should look like:

    My problem with English speakers creating manga is that they are doing it wrong

    The text should be written right to left if they Really want to do it the Japanese way

    What’s funny is, you don’t see the stuff in this Sunday page a lot in manga these days. The rivers of tears running down somebody’s cheek, the sweat-drop of embarrassment, the vein in the forehead pounding with annoyance…

    It’s true that these elements were once new and dynamic but have become as cliched as the “two guys on a desert island” meme in American cartoon strips.
