the "kanji" for manga.

You were probably looking for this kind of Manga.

Basically the japanese version of comic. Unlike regular comics, Manga is read from right to left instead of the usual left to right. And no, it isn't read down to up as well.

Another big difference is that a Manga usually has no color though some pages do get it.

Manga is of wider variety than comics because it has a wide range of genre for all ages.
