Witchblade Manga to be Flipped, Unflipped

posted on by Jonathan Mays
Top Cow and Bandai Entertainment will publish the same material in two different ways

Top Cow and Bandai Entertainment will put their own spins on the new Witchblade Takeru manga next year: Top Cow will publish the manga in a full-color flipped edition, and Bandai in black and white digest format. Release dates have not yet been announced, but volume 1 of Top Cow's edition will launch as a 40-page double issue for $2.99.

Top Cow's VP for Marketing and Sales Filip Sablik told ICv2 that the flipped format has "the full blessing of the original artist and the original Japanese publisher."

Top Cow will oversee translation, flipping, and coloring the original black and white material.

Witchblade Takeru is not based on the upcoming Witchblade anime by Gonzo, but it was written by Witchblade anime script writer Kobayashi Yasuko.
