The more I read about manga the more I realize that its skews heavily towards the visual.
I'm wondering if there's graphic novel writer who talks about the differences between writing a manga and writing a western-inspired graphic novel? Since comic books seem to put equal weight on words and pictures.
Or if there's a screenwriter who talks about manga and its similarities to film. I know that Araki cites Hitchhock as an influence but I have yet to hear a screenwriter talk about manga.
