NYCC News: YOTSUBA&! back from Yen; Marvel, DC stuff

In the most awesome news of the show — news that had fans standing up and cheering as if they were at a Kevin Costner movie or something — Yen Press announced that they have the license for YOTSUBA&!, Brigid Alverson reports, and Volume 6 will be out in September, The popular series about a young alien and her gentle yet funny adventures was previously published by ADV.

§ It’s hard to pick up on what actually happened at Marvel and DC panels unless you have a crib sheet, but apparently:

• The whole Ultimate line is going away and there will be a NEW Ultimate line.

Eighteen minutes of THE WATCHMEN were shown (while we were still in bed, alas) and everyone had to change their pants afterwards.

§ There will be FINAL CRISIS tie-in books.

Seriously, we’re too knackered to take this all in. Where are our translators?

    Marvel’s ending the Ultimates line and jumpstarting it again. WHY? Argh! FUCK MARVEL! I’m DONE!

  2. James Moar says

    ADV’s edition of Yotsuba&! volume one had “she may not even be from this planet” in the blurb — probably intended as metaphorical, and probably not translated from a Japanese original.

  3. says

    I don’t understand. Why is Marvel restarting the Ultimate line? Did they write themselves into a corner or do they just want to have a whole bunch of brand new #1 issues?

  4. Xenos says

    Yeah, the alien comment bugged me too. I take it more as a joke than that’s what she is.. unless Azuma has some twist in future volumes. Anyway, it is great to hear new volumes are on the way.
