Seven Seas to Publish Three Hit Webcomics


(Los Angeles, November 14, 2005) – Hot on the heels of its recent acquisition of Boogiepop, Seven Seas Entertainment announced today that it is expanding its publishing line once again. Fan-favorite webcomics Chugworth Academy, Earthsong, and Inverloch have found a new home with Seven Seas and will be hitting bookstores in mid-2006, the first volumes in a series of full-color trade paperbacks.

“I'm really excited about broadening the market and offering manga-influenced graphic novels in full color,” says president Jason DeAngelis. “These particular webcomics are a great complement to our current lineup of original works, and come with an enormous built-in fanbase.”

Chugworth Academy (Story by Dave Cheung and Jamal Joseph Jr., Art by Dave Cheung):

A hilariously irreverent online comic strip with an estimated fan base of over 100,000 readers! Beautiful, intelligent, and athletic, Sally has it all, including an idiot boyfriend, Kiyoshi. Along with Kiyoshi's best friend, the ever-slutty Ellice, and Chloe, Sally's hyperactive cousin, can the four friends navigate their teenage years without going completely mental?

Earthsong (Story & Art by Lady Yates):

Rated #1 webcomic on Buzzcomix.net! A young woman named Willow awakens to find herself on a mystical world with no memory of her former life. She soon discovers that not only are the residents of this world fantastical creatures of ancient lore, but the planet itself is alive and conscious…and in grave danger!

Inverloch (Story & Art by Sarah Ellerton):

Rated #1 webcomic on Topwebcomics.com and ranked #1 for popularity on Onlinecomics.net.

Meet Archeron, an innocent young pup from the horned wolf-like race the “da'kor.” After his heart is captivated by a beautiful elf, Archeron leaves behind his peaceful existence forever and sets out on a quest full of danger and unexpected mystery.
