VIZ Signature: Online Comix IKKI
So by now, I guess, I follow VIZ on their two blogs and this came up.
KKI is a monthly magazine published in Japan that has established itself as the home of some of the most innovative, bold, and compelling series in the world of contemporary manga. Since its launch in 2003 IKKI has built a catalog of titles notable for its diversity. From action to comedy to drama, from slice-of-life stories to surrealist fantasies, the one common thing these works share is an uncommon emphasis on creative quality and on pushing the boundaries of the norm.
In partnership with our imprint “VIZ Signature” line of graphic novels, IKKI is bringing the works of some of its top creators to the English-language audience via a groundbreaking online monthly manga magazine.
The first series featured in this launch is Children of the Sea by Daisuke Igarashi. Each month, new chapters will be offered online in their entirety, for free. After the completion of the online serialization of the first volume, Children of the Sea volume one will become available as a VIZ Signature graphic novel.
The list of future series to be serialized includes:
Bokurano: Ours, by Mohiro Kitoh
House of Five Leaves, by Natsume Ono
Dorohedoro, by Q Hayashida
I'll Give It My All...Tomorrow, by Shunju Aono
As it says the first one is Children of the Sea and it looks really high in terms of production quality and the site. I am assuming that they really just launched it today. I suggest checking it out!
