Amazon Lists Stargazing Dog, Yuichi Yokoyama Manga
posted on by Gia Manry
The online retailer Amazon is now listing for the book Stargazing Dog, by manga creator Takashi Murakami (not to be confused with the contemporary artist of the same name). Publisher NBM Books has confirmed with ANN that it plans to release the book in November.
Amazon is also listing a volume titled Yūichi Yokoyama: Color Engineering from publisher PictureBox. Yokoyama's short story "Book" was featured in PictureBox's New Engineering anthology and was nominated for an Eisner Award in 2008.
ANN has confirmed that publisher Harper Collins, which had a co-publishing and distribution deal with Tokyopop from 2006 until the beginning of 2011, will continue the original comic series Vampire Kisses. An Amazon listing for Vampire Kisses: Graveyard Games #1 currently shows a release date of September 27, and Katherine Tegen Books, a Harper Collins imprint, as the publisher.
An editor working on the project told ANN that work had begun on the book prior to Tokyopop's closure. The closure caused a delay in the book's production. The new volume retains writer Ellen Schreiber, but replaces artist Rem — who will illustrate Yen Press' upcoming graphic novel adaptation of the American novel Soulless — with Xian Nu Studios.
A listing on Amazon does not necessarily indicate definite release plans.
