Manga Mover Announcement

Oct 8th 2004
MANGA MOVER
Has now been launched from boychild productions as a regular anthology comic book of stories by Japanese creators.

Manga mover will showcase new manga ka to a western audience. This will be a distinctive effort in comparison to many manga translations as most of these creators will be new and upcoming manga ka, who are unknown in the west.

The stories will be mature level, some with an intelligent mainstream flavour, others being more alternative in approach. The book is split into two sections, with two stories being read in western format from the front and two in Japanese format from the back - meeting in the middle. One of these Western format stories will normally be by non Japanese creators in a broadly manga style or influence.

First issue features SAKURA MIZUKI, of recent hot Manga ‘The Spiral’ in a new story not even seen in Japan yet! Plus MISAKO ROCKS of ‘The Onion’ newspaper. Female creator TOMOKO AMEMIYA for the first time in English. Plus a story by SEAN MICHEAL WILSON of ‘Angel of the woods’ GN, art by JUAN CHAVARRIGA who has recently signed to do some books for Platinum studios.

Issue one of Manga Mover is £4 UK, $5.99 in the USA, 68 pages, perfect bound. Available in shops via Diamond distributors November Previews Catalogue, or Redroute distribution in the UK or direct from boychild productions.
