We all know Madman licenses anime and distributes both that and manga, but do you think they should be encouraging Aussie mangaka by publishing as well?
Just a thought. I've seen some talented artists around Madman, so... yeah
Opinions?

I think its an excellent idea. It would be a great way to get local artists involved.

Sounds like what Oztaku does. I do not think there is enough of a pool for two companies to split.

Something affordable would be nice.

Hmmm, I think that the difference would be that Madman licenses and distributes as well, so it wouldn't rely THAT much on publishing - it's already successful.
I just thought that maybe it would be good to keep it as an open option. Just in case. I'm not saying that they should hog ALL the upcoming Aussie manga, just give the public some choice...
...or something. ^_^; I'm real bad at explaining what I think.

Honestly, I don't care where my manga comes from. I think if MM were to publish manga; it'd be more expensive for us to buy.
I could be wrong but it's the way I see it.

The publishing game is much more different and difficult than the distribution game. We have no plans at the moment to get into publishing. we are concentrating our efforts into getting the distribution awesome first which of course will mean that in the future it will be more exposure for those wanting to get published if we ever choose to go down that path.

Isn't it already awesome? D=
It was really just a thoughtless question. I guess we can still discuss "what if" Madman published manga...

Comics publishing is a... troubled... business.
