funny...I've never come across "western manga" before :\ . Do you mean comics like Spiderman and Asterixs...etc? Well if you do than Japanese (duh!). Although various ones from China and Korea aren't bad either. Still, I agree with you on the muscular guys.....and I prefer manga noses too! (so much more elegant!). hehe....I wish I can be a manga artist too........... ^_^' (not likely to happen.....but whatever.)

well, both have their own qualities.

manga tends to exaggerate the slender guys.
while comics tend to exaggerate muscular guys.

both can be pretty realistic sometimes, although for cuteness, manga wins hands down.
yet u have to admit, some comics have just as good stories as manga does.

so basically, it just depends on taste.
though most comics are targeted towards the younger audience
while most (most is not all) manga are targeted to more mature audiences

i like japanese. There is a level of realism that i never liked. plus i lost the ability to draw realism so it depresses me to se people who can. but then i see the uber realism and it depresses me to see image prefered over storytelling. Jhonen Vasquez is cool in my book though.

When the world knocks you down, steals your wallet and spits in your eye; get up, dust yourself off and then round-house kick the world in the face. It's very top-heavy, it'll go right over.

Well, i agree mangas are the best... but here, by Western, you seem to be only talking about American comic books, the style of which i definitely hate... the thing is, there is also the European style of comic books, which i don't necessarily dislike... i mean, it's a different drawing style, more realistic... but the stories can be just as good, and funny...

who looks for realism when reading comics anyway?
Japanese characters are so much better looking and the storylines kick choot.

ayamael's right. japanese manga is best (that's why we're in MT). and western does look more realistic. and some of their comics are good stories. i know, i've read some of them. haha. but i still prefer japanese manga. XD

i guess it all depends on your taste. but i can see everyone here is up for japanese. XD

well western manga and japanese have their, but i think, japanese are more original (duh) they started it. But when u look at manga's like "Death" i think the creators put their some of their own ideas,( though a majority of their ideas came from the sandman comics), but still they proved that western manga can compete with their japanese counterparts.

All right. There's no such thing as a western manga. It's called a comic book. They call it manga because it's Japanese. Sorry about the rant, but this is one of those little things that pisses me off. ^_^'
Since I don't read comics and hate the art style from the few I have read, manga is better to me.

Western manga? a more accurate description would be Western comics and graphic novels.

i see most people hear trash "Western manga" but allow me to point out that there are plenty of adult graphic novels to choose from. for instance:
Neil Gaiman's "Sandman" that's were my handle "Dream" comes from. Sandman is the best graphic novel i have ever read- btw.
anything by Frank Miller and Alan Moore are great as well.
i since i like dark, gothic, adult stories i am a huge fan of the Vertigo line.

for the record i love both western graphic novels and manga. right now i have strictly been reading manga though.

favorite manga includes: Akira, Sei-iki [Sanctuary], Crying Freeman, gits, Strain, X [currently reading], Arm of Kannon & Hikaru no Go.

so in answer to your query athena, i like both. :)

Western manga, if you are talking about those which are trying to imitate jap mangas, are totally inferior and a pathetic attempt to copy the original japanese animators
If you are talking about western comics and such
They jus look ugly... :P

I hate Western comics so much that I wouldn't even dare touch it! I hate their art, the way the characters act, the annoying sound effects they use and the storyline.

The only good thing that western anime has is the coloring. Someone I know is a fan of western comics and showed me some amazingly colored pages. But what use is the color if everything else is bad?

Japanese manga is unique and easily absorbs my conscience. The art is very beautiful in my opinon and the stories are enjoyable (whether it's funny, exciting or sad).
