Dark Horse's Mike Richardson. The interview is a 2-parter, but all the manga talk was in part two, and it's a pretty interesting read.
Without giving it all away, Richardson lays the popularity of manga in bookstores pretty squarely in the lap of female readers, a demographic that western comics have had a tough time grasping for decades. There are also a few tidbits about upcoming CLAMP projects-- including a hint that there are "some surprises" in store --as well as movie projects.
Kurosagi Corpse Delivery Service manga. "Series?" I thought. "Could they have a contract for more than one movie? Or maybe...maybe it got redeveloped into a TV series!"
Not the case, as I found after checking in with my pals at Dark Horse. He was referring to the manga series, although Richardson apparently followed up: "Naturally, we wouldn't mind if it turned out to be a series of films..."
Me either, Mister Richardson. Me either.
