Good question: Why are Japanese manga outselling superhero books in the USA?

December 5, 2019. Story at Rutgers

"Many manga focus on everyday situations, such as stories set in schools with adolescent characters. One popular category is sports manga, which often focus on school teams and emphasize hard work, dedication and practice to develop a skill and defeat challenges – a theme called ganbaru or “to do your best.” The 1980s soccer manga Captain Tsubasa became popular in Europe and inspired world soccer stars such as Zinedine Zidane."

Ironically, this description of manga compares with the American comic book industry product of the 1940s and 1950s when niche books covered so many more areas of interest.
