Manga musings

Is it just me or has anyone else noticed the dearth of manga news of late? Is this an indication that the industry has found a happy level, down from its peak but still healthy enough to suggest that fears (hopes?) of a bubble bursting are unfounded? We still must see how the Suncoast/Musicland implosion shakes out, but I think manga is now chugging along at a respectable and sustainable pace.

That's in contrast to superhero comics, which seem to be getting by on an unsustainable glut of fanboy-pleasing "events" and multiple covers. Has DC Comics even had a comic in the past year make Diamond's Top 5 without sporting at least two covers? If so, it's news to me.
