A couple of publishing announcements that caught our eye the other day.


• Tokyopop will publish Kenji Sonishi’s NekoRamen. a manga about a cat who cooks ramen. SOLD. Via Johanna, who has a rundown of the busy marketing campaign, which includes weekly online comics.

• Slave Labor has announced CAPTAIN LONG EARS, the debut graphic novel from Diana Thung. It’s about a boy, whose father recently died, who pretends to be a space ninja. With his imaginary gorilla friend, he attempts to rescue an elephant at an amusement park. Looks Sendakian but cute.


  1. Captain Long Ears bears more than a passing resemblance to one of the protagonists of Jamaica Dwyers’s “Weird Fishes”, which was also published by SLG. Wonder what’s up with that.
