You think it was spring the way folks are pacting up. A very big manga business deal is being announced today, but you’ll have to read Publishers Weekly daily for the scoop. In the meantime, a close reading of the NYAF programming schedule reveals….this:

Del Rey & Marvel Comics
Join Del Rey Manga and Marvel Comics for a special announcement!

Sunday, Dec 9
Manga Panel Room

Are they announcing a new Hulk-flavored onigiri? What!


  1. Oh good. I first mentioned this when the panel descriptions went up, thinking it was just the fact that I was not wired into the NY publishing scene that I didn’t know what was going on.

  2. So Random Haus is working with both Marvel AND DC. I suspect that Marvel might create a separate line, probably allowing Del Ray to license their properties produced overseas. Possibly similar to the Harlequin/Dark Horse romance manga, but backwards.
    If this works, perhaps Marvel might create a teen line. It’s been 20 years since the last universe…
