Kodansha Comics announced at its Anime Expo panel on Monday that New York Comic Con will host manga artist Hiro Mashima.
Mashima is the author of the Fairy Tail manga series, which follows the adventures of world's most notorious mage guild, Fairy Tail. The manga launched in 2006 and Mashima recently stated that it will end soon. The manga has inspired two television anime, two anime films, several original video anime projects, and spinoff manga. Kodansha Comics publishes the original manga and a number of its spinoffs in North America.
Mashima also created the manga Rave Master, which ran for 35 volumes and inspired a 51-episode anime adaption of the same name.
New York Comic Con will be held from October 5-8 at the Javits Center.
