Superheroes like Superman and comic strip characters like Charlie Brown define comics for many Americans who are not comic fanatics. Even so, recently comics from Japan have started to gain popularity with American fans.
This seems rather...not together. Like two unrelated sentences. I had to read it twice to realize the connection. It's there, just not well.
Many American fans like both Japanese and American comics, but they are not the same. Japanese comics and American comics have some similarities, but are otherwise very different in artwork, story, and their influence outside of comics.
This is also awkwardly worded. It also seems kinda middle school-ish.
"While American fans of comics will read both American and Japanese comics interchangeably for the similar [insert common goal here], there are in fact many different elements that distinguish the comic books and "manga".
Also, is this for school? You need a thesis statement if it is.
You need examples. Otherwise you're throwing words against the wall.
