MÖBIUS KLEIN #1 To Add Color Pages No price change but book to be delayed

New York, NY - Due to production problems, Fanboy Entertainment's MÖBIUS KLEIN #1 has been delayed. While we regret the delay, we think that the solution we have decided upon to fix the problem will please fans who have been patiently waiting for Kia Asamiya's new manga series to ship. MÖBIUS KLEIN #1 will now include eight FULL COLOR pages of artwork while still retaining its original cover price of $2.95.

The first eight pages of MÖBIUS KLEIN #1 were originally penciled, inked and fully colored by Kia Asamiya. Our initial plan was to reprint these pages in black and white in the English language edition. We converted the color pages to black and white, retouched and lettered them and off they went. However, in final production, they were printing much too dark no matter what we tried. I discussed the matter over with Asamiya-sensei and our production people and we reached a decision we think will make fans happy. We are now going to print these pages in their original colored format!

Unfortunately, as we now have to go through and re-prep all the pages in color, MÖBIUS KLEIN #1 is going to be delayed a few more weeks. Additionally, including color pages mean increased printing costs. However, the increased cost will NOT be passed on to fans. Fanboy is going to eat the difference of adding the color pages. The cover price will remain the same. The fans have been waiting for this book. It is late already. Adding the color pages while keeping the original cover price unchanged is our way of thanking the fans for their understanding and patience with us.
