Seven Seas Entertainment have announced yet another new series ‘ Unearthly’ this time to be penned by Ted Naifeh, art by Elmer Damaso. The first wave of seven seas titles should be hitting stores now and looks to be just the start of Seven Seas ambitious plans.
Press release as follows:
TED NAIFEH TO PEN NEW MANGA SERIES UNEARTHLY FOR SEVEN SEAS
(Los Angeles, March 3, 2005) - From the fertile mind of Ted Naifeh (Courtney Crumrin) and the pioneering manga talents at Seven Seas Entertainment comes a new shoujo sci-fi comedy of Shakespearian proportions -- Unearthly!
From Earth to the farthest reaches of outer space, Unearthly's tale begins with a sensitive, bookish girl named Ann who, thanks to her crush on pretty boy Jem, is finally beginning to take notice of the world around her. But Jem has also attracted the attention of the most beautiful girl in school, Rae. Just don't expect your average love triangle -- especially when an identity-snatching alien from outer space jumps into the fray!
"With our first titles already hitting store shelves, it's time we started solidifying our second wave. There's no better person than Ted Naifeh to anchor our summer line-up," said Jason DeAngelis, head of Seven Seas. "Ted's writing on Unearthly is top notch and the art, by Elmer Damaso, is jaw-dropping. This is going to be one hot book."
Unearthly's tale of star-crossed lovers and interstellar bad-boys hits store shelves this August, but readers can catch a free preview of the series at www.gomanga.com this Spring.
