The small German-language comics industry has been transnational in several senses since its creation after the Second World War, caught in an asymmetrical relationship and dominated by imported – though not always American – comics. The market's marginal position and small size have made it difficult to establish the infrastructure for local creators to flourish, and in particular to create a product that can be exported. After the manga boom of the turn of the century, German comics publishers have tried with mixed success to use the respectably literary-sounding 'graphic novel' both to attract local readers and to raise the German industry's global profile.
