Īn Japan, comics are read differently from in the West. You start from the right and read right-to-left, which not everybody knows. For that reason, most manga publishers in the west make sure to include instructions on how to read manga in their manga books, so that the reader will know what to do. These instructions are always placed on the last page of the manga book, so that readers who don't know anything about manga-reading and open the book from the wrong direction will get an explanation on how they should read the book and not be confused. Often, these instructions include a picture of a comics page with word balloons, with a number in each word balloon to show in which order you're supposed to read them.
