Ugly American Manga

Archie Comics had lots of success last year giving Sabrina a manga makeover. So they are going to try again with Josie and the Pussycats. Here's a pic:

I actually like the new Sabrina, but this new Josie just looks amatureish.  Some sample pages that look a little bit better (but still aren't very exciting) can be seen here.  I think manga Sabrina succeeds because of the talents of writer/artist Tania del Rio, not just because it looks like manga.  I think the folks at Archie are heading for a fall with the manga Josie... even though del Rio is doing the writing.
