We all know about the effect Manga and other asian comics have had in America (and other western countries for that matter). But I wonder what kind of effect American comics have had on Japan? I know there are a few mangaka that swear on Frank Miller (at least his pre-crazy stuff), and Batman is supposedly very popular, plus the legendary Japanese spiderman show.
I remember Antarctic press once releasing a collection of articles and fan art from a Japanese magazone called Gadget (apperently a fanzine). It was pretty interesting. But what have you guys heard of how Western comics go over in the far east?
