That seems dirty but my question is why would anyone ever want to buy your photos? Who buys photos at all?
Well in the article, it does say that some photos could be used for commercial purposes. Like pics of you and your family having fun at a hotel. That hotel, for example, could buy those pics and use them to promote it.
Well sure they could but they could just as easily get some of their employees to get into street clothes and pose for a staged photo. If it matters that the photo was fake, I'm sure it would matter that it was stolen.
How is it that manga is capable of selling in the millions of units for issues or volumes whereas comic books struggle to reach the 200,000 mark in the selling of their units? It still bemuses me today.
Because manga are part of Japanese culture whereas comics are just something that exists in American culture but isn't really considered integral. It's not acceptable to read comics but it's normal to read manga.
That said, I've actually never heard of anyone thinking manga were mostly read by males, I've always thought of them as a female thing, given that in high school it was almost only girls that read them. Although to be fair, the only person I've ever seen reading a comic in an actual high school itself was also a girl.
There is an Omnibus (unless that is what you are referring to yourself as reading), they aren't really relevant outside their own comics for the most part so it seems like just reading those would be sufficient?
Wikipedia pretty much explains it all.
Picking an actual single issue would be far too difficult, there's too many amazing ones so I wouldn't be able to pick a great one and instead would probably go for something from Penthouse Comix or something or an original graphic novel if that counts?
