We spoke with Philip Simon
, editor at Dark Horse, about the various titles in Super Manga Blast
! and how they will be affected after the cancellation of the manga anthology.
According to Simon, who has been editing Super Manga Blast
! since January 2004, the original black and white What's Michael?
material will wrap up in the final issue of Super Manga Blast
! and will be published in graphic novel format in April 2006. Simon says, "It's a case of odd synchronicity that the last black-and-white What's Michael?
story, “Planet of the Cats,” concludes in the last issue of Super Manga Blast
! We actually didn't plan for that to happen."Cannon God Exaxxion
volume 5 will be on sale in May 2006.
Formal plans have not yet been officiated for their other titles - Shadow Star
and Seraphic Feather
