What does Manhua mean?

I am finally getting back in touch with my blogging roots and relooking, continuing and expanding my anime dictionary. I thought I would start with the word Manhua. The reason being, I currently seem to be reading a lot of them and figured it would be a fun place to start. 

Definition of Manhua

Manhua is the Chinese word for comics. These titles usually have authors and artists that are Chinese, and/or were first published in China. Manhua works were widely published and read in China since the 1920’s.

Chinese comics, Manhua, cover a wide range of genres. A wide selection of manhua has been labourously translated into a wide range of languages, including English.

Examples of Manhua:

Battle Through The Heavens

A Lonesome Fragrance Waiting To Be Appreciated

 Sheng Wang

A Pair of Otakus

Are you reading any Manhua’s?
