The Manga Industry and Your Library!

Manga is here, and it isn't going anywhere (thankfully!). One of the many places you can find manga is at your local library, but for librarians and library users (such as myself) there's often questions about what's what. Thankfully, Jillian RUdes assembled expert staff from VIZ Media, Kodansha, and Yen Press to talk all about it at New York Comic Con 2022 for a panel.

And now you can watch it from anywhere. Popverse filmed this and many other panels at New York Comic Con this year (see the complete line-up here), which you can watch by becoming a Popverse member at the 'Fan' level (or higher).

Watch the full The Manga Industry and Your Library! panel from New York Comic Con 2022 with TJ Ferentini, Mark de Vera, Ben Applegae, Julia Walchuk, and Jillian Rudes here:
