When News Goes Manga


I am not suggesting this move would save our newspapers, but some papers in Japan have started to shift towards Manga News, which converts some news items of the day into a manga-style story. I suppose this is both cultural (Manga comics are everywhere in Japan) and demographic (how to keep younger people reading the newspapers).

You can check out a website with Manga News here, although it is all in Japanese.

And Wired had an article about the shift, too. Like every other idea now in the world, there is an app for it, too.

Peace (in the news),
