Vietnam's exhibition of manga art by women

Vietnam Net Bridge has an article about a manga exhibition in Hanoi featuring art by female artists, and if there was something that really surprised me, it's what one says about the public's perception of comics there:
"People in Viet Nam often think that comics are for children only," said Kato. "However, I realised that some Vietnamese artists have released some good comics for adults."
Well good heavens, if that's accurate, who knew that the United States (and Canada) wasn't the only place where some people still consider the medium only for children, even long after it's all but ceased to be that way? Apparently, even in Asia, there's at least one place few might've expected to hear that. It's really not great to hear, but it shows that North America isn't the only place in the world where this kind of thinking might take place.

About me

  • I'm Avi Green
  • From Jerusalem, Israel
  • I was born in Pennsylvania in 1974, and moved to Israel in 1983. I also enjoyed reading a lot of comics when I was young, the first being Fantastic Four. I maintain a strong belief in the public's right to knowledge and accuracy in facts. I like to think of myself as a conservative-style version of Clark Kent. I don't expect to be perfect at the job, but I do my best.
