News Tokyopop Says Pulled Titles Are Delayed, Not Cancelled

Tokyopop Marketing Director Marco Pavia has clarified with MangaBlog that almost all of the new solicitations that were listed by Diamond Comic Distributors as "Cancelled by Publisher" will be rescheduled later. The schedule changes come in the aftermath of Tokyopop's December layoffs. The one possible exception is the .hack//SIGN Manga-Novel Special Edition bundle due to "some licensing issues." This bundle combines the franchise's first manga and novel volumes, both of which were already published separately.
