Popular online Doujinshi, Megatokyo to be published in print by Studio Ironcat.

Megatokyo and Studio Ironcat announced yesterday that the publisher would relese a print version of the popular online comic strip this December. The print version will feature 120 pages of high quality comic strips and "a whole host of information and special extras for the print edition only."

The Megatokyo collection will retail for $8.95 and will be available online and in comic book stores, preorders will be available at in two weeks.

The Megatokyo websomic/doujinshi receives over 275 000 visitors a day and 18 million hits per month.

"To me, the collections are very important because they let people see all the details they miss in the lower resolution versions available on the website. I believe that there must be special content that makes it worth buying for people who have already read the comic online," said Fred Gallagher, artist and creative force behind MegatoykoT. "I'm working with Studio Ironcat to produce a high quality book that is more than just a collection of comics - it needs to capture a little bit of what makes MT what it is, and they are giving me the creative control to do it the way I think it needs to be done, and I'm very excited about the whole process."
