Manga as Metaphor on FPI Blog

I did a piece on manga as metaphor. It's on the FPI blog. It's about how some people use the word 'manga' as a metaphor for all Japanese comics, except maybe the comics they like. Which allows them to say, without seeing any contradiction, 'I don't like manga, but I love Walking Man'. Which of course they should because it is beautiful.

Oh, and Allan, a whole new readership now knows you read the Bunty.

How come? And is 'read' past tense or present?
