"ICv2 has supported the growth of manga in the North America since its first incarnation as a trade magazine in the 1980s,” ICv2 Publisher Milton Griepp said of the event. "We’re proud to continue that tradition with our 2019 event, tracking the latest trends and helping retailers find new ways to sell this crucial category. Manga Week allows us to explore issues around this changing market in depth, and we want to thank our sponsors, VIZ Media and Tokyopop, for their support."
ICv2 kicked things off with a comprehensive overview of yuri, one of the fastest-growing subgenres in manga sales and a look at the bestsellers for the most recent season. Here's the full linked list of Manga Week articles:
