NYCC: Yen Press Liveblog

Yen Press at New York Comic Con.

Yen Press is going to start soon.

Abby,  Yen+'s resident shrimp artist, senior editor Ju Youn-Lee, bossman Kurt Hassler, and Tanya presiding here.

The new announcements:
  • JiUn Yun's Time and Again will start in the December issue of Yen+.
  • Spice and Wolf manga yaaaaay!
  • JinJun Park's Raiders
  • Hyun You's Laon
  • Yotsuba&! volume 6! HOLY SHIT!
  • Hyouta Fujiyama's yaoi title Crescent Moon Story.

Why did this thing just lose my other updates? I'll try to remember it all: the April issue of Yen will feature a pull-out poster of Soul Eater, the magazine's first such swag. on Yotsuba, they will release the sixth volume first, then go back and deal with reprinting issues. 6 should come out in September. Yotsuba&! fans, you're welcome from Yen.

They ARE considering both yuri titles and an online version of Yen+. They've got some more major announcements for later this year relating to OEL titles.

I forgot to push the Published button. Oops. SORRY!

That's it, on to the freebies! (No, I'm not getting in line for them...I don't like lines.)

EDIT: I lied. I was able to sneak right in and grab a Soul Eater key topper. <3<3

Yotsuba&! volume 6?! Wow. I feel bad for ADV, but it needed to come out eventually.

Man, ADV must be seriously hard up for cash if they lost or sold the rights to Yotsuba&!.  Admittedly it isn't for everybody but if ADV would have printed it, they would have generated (some) income. 

In either event thank you YEN! (and thanks Gia for telling us about it)

Love Yen Press and their mag Yen Plus. Look at all the grate Title they have.

Just as surprised (although I guess we shouldn't be) as everyone else about Yen now publishing Yotsuba.
