Planet Blood is read left-to-right, as evidenced by the Tokyopop spine on the left side of the image for Volume 1. Right-to-left (manga-style) have that spine image on the right side.

That implies it's either English or Korean.

I haven't been reading up on the "Rising Stars in Manga," but could it be possible that Planet Blood is one of the titles from that? Just a thought because the name "Planet Blood" seems some what familiar seeing as I do occasionaly flip through Rising Stars in Manga.

In the URLs, I'm adding "product codes" "YKK" and "QCC", but still getting nothing.

Damn. Crying or Very sad

I did a search and could find no info on it other than the Tokyopop site. Which kinda sucks.

I went through the lists of the winners of the RSoM competitions and Planet Blood was not one of the titles.

Also, they have Planet Blood listed as 11 volumes. There is no possible way that they are publishing an 11 volume American comic (Aren't their American comic contracts usually for 3 volumes?) so I think it would be safe tio assume that PB is manhwa

I did a search with the ISBN (1595325379) and found it on Amazon Canada.

The manhwa-ka? is Tae Hyeong Kim. <--Korean.

Man, I did an ISBN search earlier and couldn't find it. :p

With that, I guess the mystery is solved.
