C.B. Cebulski to work on projects aimed at brining younger readers, and girl into comics.

C.B. Cebulski has joined marvel comics as an Associate Editor. Cebulski's past credits include working with Central Park Media in in bringing titles such as Record of Lodoss War, Slayers, Plastic Little, Geobreeders, Dark Angel, and Nadeisco to U.S. audiences. While at Fanboy Entertainment, Cebulski worked closely with Kia Asamiya to produce Dark Angel: Phoenix Resurrection comic series, the first color Manga to land on American shores in over 10 years. Cebulski then followed this up by producing the first shojo (girls') Manga ever created specifically for Western sensibilities and styling were successfully combined with super hero themes in the series Sidekicks, by J. Torres and Takeshi Miyazawa, which Cebulski edited. He also worked with such creators as Yoshtoshi Abe of Serial Experiments Lain and Range Murata of Blue Submarine No. 6 on their critically acclaimed art collections.

Indications are that Cebulski will be working on projects aimed at brining younger readers, and girl into comics, in adition to bringing Japanese names to Marvel projects.

Cebulski stated "Recently, in Japan, many Manga creators have been taking more 'American comic style' approaches to their art and storytelling, which they freely admit... They are just as influenced by our comics as we are by their Manga, and I know many of the Japanese artists are already chomping at the bit to take a crack at drawing Marvel's heroes."

"Well, I think it goes without saying that Kia Asamiya's name will be turning up on some Marvel comics before too long. In fact, just look for his cover to IRON MAN #55 in May. I have also talked with Takehiko Ito, creator of Outlaw Star, and illustrator Katsuya Terada of Zenbu and Blood: The Last Vampire fame, and they have also lined up some upcoming work for Marvel. And the list continues to grow daily!".
