NYCC | Yen Press snatches up Yotsuba&!
The big manga news today out of New York Comic Con is that Yen Press has picked up the license to Yotsuba&!, the popular comedy series previously published by ADV Manga.
Yen will release the sixth volume in September.
Kiyohiko Azuma’s manga, which debuted in Japan in 2003, centers on the offbeat, everyday adventures of a quirky girl named Yotsuba, and her family and friends.
Yotsuba&! was nominated for a 2008 Eisner Award for Best Publication for Kids.
ADV originally advertised Vol. 6 for release in February 2008, but canceled the solicitation. Vol. 5 was released in October 2007.
Yen also announced it has acquired Spice and Wolf, and Crescent Moon Story.
