Abstract
The comic book industries of the East Asian countries of Hong Kong, South Korea, and Taiwan have long contended with the inroads made by Japanese manga. These have included dwarfing the sales of domestic comics and affecting the styles of local cartoonists. Yet, despite these and other formidable problems, comics thrive in each country largely through risky manoeuvres such as the creation of new genres, the conversion from rental to sales markets, and pirated to legitimate operations. This paper, with information culled from government and comic industry officials and cartoonists, focuses on these developments.
