Publishers Weekly reports that Hachette Book Group USA's Yen Press imprint has confirmed its absorption of the ICE Kunion manhwa venture's licenses and its hiring of former ICE Kunion editorial director Ju-Youn Lee. One of the first indications of these moves was San Diego Comic-Con International's updated panel descriptions, which lists Lee on the "Yen Press Launches" panel. Yen Press plans to release 30-40 manhwa volumes in 2008, as well as a new comic anthology for which Lee will edit and compile Japanese, Korean, and non-Asian works.
