TOKYOPOP®, a POP Media Holdings company and global manga leader, announced their adjusted release schedule during the COVID-19 pandemic.
The outbreak of novel coronavirus around the world has resulted in non-essential businesses closing down temporarily, including our printer, lettering team, distributor and other vitally important parts of the publishing process. Due to these setbacks, we have had to make the difficult decision to delay the print release of our upcoming titles originally scheduled for release in April and May of 2020.
“This is such a difficult time for the publishing world, and our hearts are with everyone in the industry,” says Kae Winters, TOKYOPOP’s Marketing Associate. “Our current focus is getting things back up and running – with people’s health and safety in mind, of course – so our retailer friends can maintain their businesses and keep getting comics and manga to their customers.”
