Central Park Media Reaches Manga Milestone

Slayers Super-Explosive Demon Story Book 3: Red Priest in December.

New York, NY (December 3, 2003) – Central Park Media announced the release of its 100th graphic novel release: Slayers Super-Explosive Demon Story Book 3: Red Priest available December 3, 2003.

Central Park Media first exploded on to the graphic novel scene with Project A-ko, the manga version of the widely popular anime. Anime fans embraced the graphic novel and CPM found a new vehicle to bring even more fans to the previously small niche genre. The production of the 100th graphic novel plus continued expansion and growth of CPM's graphic novels prompted the creation of CPM Press.

CPM Press is the umbrella brand enveloping CPM Manga, CPM Manhwa and CPM Comics. CPM Press' diverse catalog features some of the hottest licenses in Japan for science fiction, fantasy, action/adventure, comedy and Shoujo (comics targeted at women). With fans in mind, CPM Press has re-sized, re-priced, and changed the format of its graphic novels to mirror the traditional Japanese right to left format whenever possible.

"This release marks an exciting milestone in the ascendant growth of CPM Press' publishing program, happily coinciding with the phenomenal rise in popularity of manga in the United States." – stated John Davis, CPM Press Account Executive.
