"With a strange plague of demonic possession slowly takes over the bodies of unsuspecting victims, there's only one man to call - the acupuncturist, D. Taima! His knowledge of the obscure ability to wield the Taimashin - needles not only used to banish malevolent and lecherous demons, but that can control the flow of chi in all things - makes him a force to be reckoned with! Having found its way to Dunwich, Massachusetts, Dr. Taima and his lovely assistant, Maki Togetsu, venture to America to combat this repulsive plague that turns people into rapacious monsters that devour anything within their grasp! When an ally joins Dr. Taima, how will these Taimashin masters bait their prey into their piercing trap?"
[This manga series is separate from, but related to, Misaki Saitō's Taimashin MASHIN Taidou-hen adaptation of Kikuchi's novels. ADV Manga had planned to release Saito's version before canceling the release.]

The Amazon site also lists Peter David and Dan Hip's graphic novel adaptation of the animated Ben 10 television series from Del Rey on October 27. Yen Press is similarly adapting Lisi Harrison's Clique novels for a book to be released on November 5.

Update: Yen Press has told Kuriousity that the Clique adaptation listing is inaccurate and is currently pending a review.
