EigoManga Forms Partnership with Devil's Due Publishing

Date: 2005 July 14th Thursday [6:24] | Posted By: Davie

EigoManga have just sent us a press release of their latest announcement.
Full Story
CHICAGO, IL - eigoMANGA Ltd. and Devil's Due Publishing have announced a new publishing partnership, beginning this December.

Starting December 2005, eigoMANGA's flagship publication series, RUMBLE PAK and SAKURA PAKK will be released to comic book stores and retail chain bookstores under the DDP banner. Both publications, previously released through eigoMANGA's own label, will reset with a new line up of original stories. RUMBLE PAK is an ongoing anthology of action oriented, fantastical stories aimed at the male demographic; its sister title is SAKURA PAKK, a "shojo" series aimed at the female audience.

eigoMANGA is an underground phenomenon in Anime and Manga circles, and has its hands in a number of potential developments that rival that of larger corporations. Devil's Due President Joshua Blaylock was turned onto them through a mutual business partner. "I've been impressed with the drive and energy of Austin Osueke since we met a few months ago," says Blaylock. "That drive has put eigoMANGA on the map through promotions at anime conventions across the country, and I hope we can work together to create some great entertainment".

"I'm very excited about working with Devil's Due", states Austin Osueke CEO and Publisher of eigoMANGA. "It'll enable eigoMANGA's comics to reach a higher level of excellence and quality working with an industry leader. For the first time, our brand and comics will be in a strong position to effectively and consistently compete against other US manga publishers".

"Devil's Due will help us penetrate new markets and a larger comic book audience like never before. Plus we'll be one of their main vehicles to produce and release original manga works. It's a win-win opportunity for both of us", states Osueke.
