Comic Book Sells 2 Million Copies

2 Million. That's a lot.

FRUITS BASKET, a manga series, has sold over 2 million copies sold, according to Heidi MacDonald's THE BEAT blog.

I was in a very nice comics shop over Thanksgiving. I bought some manga, and the guy was telling me that manga is over, dead, fugghetaboutit. "It's swinging back to superheroes," he informed me. Looking at the shelf space that manga is getting at my local bookstore, and comparing it to all of the other comics -- I just don't see it that way.
