Tons of Fun is in the Cards for Manga Readers this Spring

Los Angeles, CA (September 13, 2004) Step into the life of a hip fortune-teller who can see the future when TOKYOPOP®, the #1 graphic novel publisher, conjures up the The Tarot Café in March 2005. Illustrated by one of Korea's premier manga artists, Park Sang Sung (creator of TOKYOPOP's wildly compelling action fantasy series Les Bijoux), The Tarot Café is a mysterious tale that combines fantasy visions and mesmerizing adventure into one spellbinding story. Ranked as one of Korea's top-selling graphic novels, The Tarot Café is predestined to become a worldwide reader favorite.

The Tarot Café tells the paranormal tale of Pamela, a tarot card reader who is fated to help supernatural beings living in the human world. Welcoming all who walk through her door-from a love-stricken cat, to a vampire spending eternal life running from his one true love-Pamela deals with the problems of others, until she is ultimately forced to face a deep dark secret of her own.

“The Tarot Café is a prime example of the sheer talent that makes manga such a publishing phenomenon here in the States,” said Julie Taylor, Senior Editor, TOKYOPOP. “We are thrilled by the opportunity to add The Tarot Café to our 2005 catalog.”
