According to Planet Namek and the latest
Wizard issue, Viz will be donating $100,000 dollars worth of comics
to libraries. Although I would prefer them to use up more of there
resources to sell unedited Dragon Ball comics. If they can be noble
enough to donate comics so kids can learn about other cultures they
should be able to sell unaltered DB comics.
Here is a bit from the latest issue of Wizard:
As a final step on the way to world
domination, manga titles have officially taken over America's libraries.
Viz Comics recently donated $100,000 in comics and graphic novels
to many of America's public libraries. Viz and the libraries are hoping
these titles will encourage young children and teens to use the resources
available to them, in addiction to increasing the readership of some
of Viz's most popular titles. Gundam Wing, Pokemon and Dragon Ball
Z are some of the titles that Viz is putting on the shelves, and the
response has been positive so far. "I'm certain that San Fransico
teens will be thrilled with these titles," said Jennifer Collins,
a librarian at the San Fransico Public Library. The libraries that
Viz gave books to ranges from California to Ohio, including Dallas
TX, Seattle, WA; Madison WI; and Los Angeles CA. Viz is determined
to keep libraries stocked as long as there is a demand."
