Interesting bits of news in the manga world:
1. First, a thing we edited for Del Rey is out: MINIMA! volume 2. Imagine Toy Story meeting, I dunno, a sweet and innocent version of the manga/anime Kare Kano/His and Hers Circumstances, and you’ll be on the right track.
2. Even more Park-and-Barb-flavored, a manhwa (from Korea, you see) we adapted/rewrote from Day 1, volume 1 of FORGET ABOUT LOVE, is currently on sale from TOKYOPOP. It’s a high-school comedy.
3. We found out today that the most recent issue of the United States’ version of SHONEN JUMP, brought to you by Viz Media and… well… Shonen Jump… has, as its first story (before Naruto even), NORA, a manga Barb and I adapted/rewrote which will be on sale soon. In the manga world, this is a big deal. If you are into manga and action, Shonen Jump is THE big deal, monthly magazine-wise. Even if you love all genres equally, really. Once again, that’s the October 2008 version of Shonen Jump, Volume 6, Issue 10. It’s comedy/supernatural/action in the flavor of Naruto and Inu-Yasha.
