More manga mania: The Evansville (Ind.) Courier & Press discovers that local teens are crazy about manga and anime:

"When Jim Jones opened his Comic Quest comic-book store in Evansville in 1990, he had only a few Japanese manga titles. 'By 1994 you would have been lucky to come into the store and find one shelf with 20 books.'

"Today, however, walk into Comic Quest and you'll see an entire section, front and center, with more than 1,800 different manga books, 'and that's not counting the magazines or how-to-draw books,' said Jones."
