LOS ANGELES, CA —TOKYOPOP®, a POP Media Holdings company and global manga leader, are launching a new line of Digital First titles to accompany their print catalogue, with the first two titles currently in production.
With the launch of its International Women of Manga line in 2017, TOKYOPOP sought to highlight more diverse voices within the manga industry, and aims to continue those efforts with its Digital First titles. The two flagship titles for this exciting new initiative are DEATH KNELL and THE WAY OF SHAO, with plans to distribute these and upcoming titles across numerous digital platforms including Amazon Kindle, Apple iBookstore, ComiXology, library apps, and more.
“We’re proud and excited to bring you two brand-new series which represent major TOKYOPOP initiatives, Digital First and diversity,” says CEO Stu Levy. “Both of these talented creators, Tim Smith 3 and ShaoDow, deliver pulsating, dynamic stories each with a unique world view, and we can’t wait for fans to discover DEATH KNELL and THE WAY OF SHAO.”
Both titles are currently in production, and will be released in Q4 2019.
