TOKYOPOP's "Finding Nemo" will be available in English for readers in the United States for the first time in July.
After shutting down in 2011, the one-time U.S. manga powerhouse is re-entering the print market with three manga based on Disney properties.
The publisher will release "collector's manga" editions of "Alice in Wonderland and "Finding Nemo," as well as "Kilala Princess," featuring the Disney Princesses.
"It actually goes back to the series I worked on before, 'Rave Master,'" Hiro Mashima explains. "In one episode, there was a scene where a group of guys are hanging out at a bar. That was fun to draw. So I wanted to draw a manga with the feel of guys hanging out at a bar."
The French satirical magazine plans to publish 1 million copies of a special issue commemorating the one-year anniversary of the deadly attack on its Paris office.
Tokyopop CEO Stu Levy spoke with CBR News at Comic-Con about his plans to return to publishing and answers critics of his company's contracts.
"I can't speak for other companies, I can only speak for myself," says DC's Dan DiDio, "but I think there's a level of awareness and a level of urgency that we all realize that we have to be really reflective of these times."
As expected, Tokyopop had big news at Anime Expo: plans for a resurgence, with new manga and anime acquisitions, and the launch of the PopComics app.
