The lights are on
Is there anyone who reads both? I love manga and read a lot of boy orientated material. (I can't get enough of DBZ!) I absolutely adored all the Marvel movies so far but I obviously know there's a difference. Can anyone give advice on a good place to start? My interests are all over the place and I almost always love everything I read @.@
Lol DBZ is not really a real manga...well it is but not for story at least. Comic and Manga are two separate things. You cannot compare the two or contrast really as they are different styles all together. If you want some good manga start with this site.

Oh, no I know. I meant I do like my variety of genres, including boy oriented material. I figured they are pretty different was just wondering if anyone here likes both of them. Thanks for the site though! :)
But if you want some good mangas with not so many man roles try
Tokyo Girls destruction
also I enjoy
I enjoy both though still haven't read much of either. I grew up reading Marvel and DC comics but of course they're pretty different now, and since I don't have much time I end up reading graphic novels, which are sometimes compilations of a comic book storyline. For instance, I have Marvel's Civil War, Marvel 1602, Batman The Killing Joke, Batman The Dark Knight Returns, Batman Year One, Watchmen, etc. I also have a few issues 1 of the New 52 series of DC comics (reboots of superhero stories) including Swamp Thing, Batgirl, Batwoman, etc. Among my manga I have Ghost in the Shell (I loved the movie and the manga is well regarded) and Samurai Commando 1&2 (bought cheap at Anime Expo but actually enjoy what I've read). So far I just shop based on my interests, user ratings & reviews, etc. So maybe those titles might interest you? My daughter is a big DBZ fan, too, and watches the show and reads the manga. ; ) As far as difference, as Meta suggests they're pretty different, and I likely don't know enough yet to explain. That said, they share similarities such as fantasy elements, though I think graphic novels especially of comic book storylines obviously focus on superheroes and supervillains, whereas I think manga tends to focus more on either science fiction/futuristic storylines or magic/witchcraft or even just drama? I could be really wrong though LOL. Don't know if I helped or confused you more! But that's what I'm here for haha. : P

Thats a big paragraph. :p
Haha thanks guys. Yeah, I'll have to check it out sometime at Barnes and noble or something. Meta, Fairy Tail is probably racing for first place against Full metal Alchemist on my top favorite anime list if all time. I. JUST. LOVE. IT.
@Meta: I'm larger than life. : D
You have a daughter into dbz so you must be doing something right :D
LOL thanks, Meta. Unfortunately, I can't take credit, she just came across the series while watching Nicktoons or some such channel. But at least she has good taste! Actually my daughters and I share a love of Avatar: The Last Airbender and Khoura or whatever it's called, though I have significantly less time to spend watching either. : (
love both but i read manga more
Manga for me.

I like Manga better. They are more fun to read.
I like comics.
