MANGA IS THE JAPANESE VERSION OF AMERICAN COMICS. Unlike American comics that are read starting from left to right, Japanese manga is the opposite of that, reading Japanese Manga should start on the right to left then from top to bottom like the one that is on the image below.
MANHWA & MANHUA UNDERSTANDING:
MANHWA IS THE KOREAN COUNTERPART OF MANGA & MANHUA IS THE CHINESE COUNTERPART OF MANGA in Japan. The only difference is the layout and style of these Comics. But unlike MANGA, this however is read starting from left to right then top to bottom. Just like American comics do. Look at the image below.
PMSCANS elaborately instruction on typesetting! LOL
