posted on by Egan Loo
Comic Party and Murder Princess artist Sekihiko Inui announced at FanimeCon 2007 that he is starting Ratman, a superhero parody manga. Kadokawa's Monthly Shonen Ace has a four-page preview in the current July issue, and the series starts in the August 2007 issue (on sale June 26). Inspired by American comics, Japanese special-effects shows, and Pixar's The Incredibles movie, Ratman depicts a boy who wants to be a superhero, but gets drafted into a supervillain corporation instead. Tokyopop published Comic Party, and Broccoli Books publishes Murder Princess.
