What is the difference between Chix Comix and Pocket Mixx?
Basically, Chix Comix are individual comic books containing the story, while Pocket Mixx are compilations of the manga story into little books, or graphic novels, with multiple acts (chapters) per book. Now I will go into more specifics for each type: The comics are released monthly. They contain approximately 40 pages each, and current issues should cost about $3. They are a typical comic book size (6.7″ by 10.2″) are each one has a full-color cover, and sometimes even a full-color back. All of these images are pulled directly from the illustration collections and may or may not be flipped from the original artwork. Pros: Lots of nice, large pictures on the covers; the pages are full-sized and easy to read Cons: They cost more overall ($3×4=$12); they do not have the extras, like Naoko’s notes in the back or Rini’s Picture Dairies; older issues are starting to get expensive if you haven’t been collecting from the beginning The graphic novels are compilations of the previous publishing
