This podcast was recorded on Saturday May 28th. This was before Vertical and Dark Horse announced they good news of their first quarter sales being up and before ICv2 showed that manga held 14 out of the top 20 places for graphic novel sales according to Bookscan.

Ferris Bueller said, “Life moves pretty fast.” And that was before internet!
A week to the day that I published this podcast, the Japanese and American publishers have formed a coalition to fight scanlation sites. So I’m not sure how much of this conversation will be relevant in the coming days. There is a lot of talk and speculation about what this new coalition means. For now, I’m going to sit back and watch events unfold for awhile before venturing an opinion. And wait even longer before venturing a public opinion. So please go read the news story at Publisher’s Weekly at http://www.publishersweekly.com/pw/by-topic/digital/copyright/article/43437-japanese-u-s-manga-publishers-unite-to-fight-scanlations.html You can read Viz’s official press release here: http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/press-release/2010-06-08/multi-national-manga-anti-piracy-coalition-formed
