Thanks to much patient help from Del Rey’s new Manga Marketing Manager, Ali Kokmen, I am now finally subscribed to their monthly newsletter (link no longer available)! I’d signed up a number of times, but nothing ever showed up — turns out that the “allow non-Western characters” option had to be set on my email account. (Duh on me!) I’m looking forward to finding out more about their books, because they’re so well-packaged I’d like to be reading more of them… but that depends on whether any of the stories grab me. I was impressed, though, by the number of readers mentioning them favorably in the Viz or Tokyopop comments thread.Good Comics Out November 24: Goodbye, Del Rey, and a Manga Flood § Manga Links Worth Thinking About § Another Bad Manga Industry Sign: Del Rey Lays Off Ali Kokmen § Del Rey Omnibus Manga: School Rumble 14/15/16 § Tokyopop Planning the Return of Hetalia #3?
