Two manga-style news are launching within a month in Japan.
Manga no Shimbun
On the launch announcement [J], also in manga by (probably) the chief of editor, he says they have plans for cellphone sites, multi-language translation to English, French, Korean, etc.
Nihon IT Manga Shimbun
This site, as the site title implies, only has IT related news, however, the top-right tabs, currently disabled says, “Economic” and “Politics” so these two other categories might appear soon.
In the country where huge number of comics are published, where not only kids but many adults read them, it is wise to reach people in manga style, I think.
