Quotes

...wants to get that audience interested in comics--first as casual fans, and then, hopefully, as hard-core fans who will go on to read other comics. "They are not going to transition from this to superhero comics, but they might transition to Archie or My Little Pony or Adventure Time" he said
According to Viz Media PR and Events Manager Jane Lui, sales at Viz's NYCC shop were "amazing, almost non-stop." She added, "We didn't have a retail area for many years because we were focused on different priorities, but the fans are really coming out to support us."
...Motoya Matsu then launched his Log Horizon Gaiden Honey Moon Logs manga adaptation in ASCII Media Works " Monthly Comic Deneaki Daioh magazine that same year. Kazuhiro Hara began serializing the main manga adaptation on Enterbrain 's Famitsu Comic Clear website in 2012 also, and Koyuki began drawing another manga called Log Horizon ~Nishikaze no Ryodan~ in Fujimi Shobo 's Age Premium website in 2012."
Newman acknowledged that the MAG Project's goals are "ambitious," but added, "if it leads to a reduction in piracy and an increase in legal consumption that will be great for fostering a healthy market for the industry outside of Japan. In fact, we are seeing healthy traffic coming from MAG, so the project is already encouraging. We hope that it continues to ramp up and make a difference."
