Tokyopop to Hold 'Garage Sale' in Los Angeles
posted on by Gia Manry
Tokyopop, the international manga publisher that is now shutting down its North American publishing division, announced yesterday that it will be hosting a "garage sale" in Los Angeles in mid-May to clear out "manga, posters," and other items from its offices. The date and time for the public sale will be announced at a later date.
Tokyopop is also offering its fans on Facebook an opportunity to access the sale prior to its public availability, provided that they are willing to travel to Los Angeles. The company will select 10 fans who submit fan art, videos, costumes, or other media to its Facebook page before May 1. The winners will receive a goodie bag which must be picked up in person, and they can also participate in the private garage sale on May 4.
The company also noted that it returned the Tokyopop tour bus which was used in the America's Greatest Otaku reality web series last summer.
