GEN Manga Issue 4 out now, plus download free indie manga

Date: Monday August 15th 2011 [15:55] | Posted By: Joe

GEN Manga the company bringing us indie manga from the Tokyo underground have sent us reminder that issue 4 is out today.

They've also released issue 2 for free. They're even extending their subscribers discount. What makes GEN Manga interesting is that each issue is published on PDF, so you can download it and read it on any device that'll handle PDF documents. There's no nasty DRM to worry about, or installing extra naggy software, just one file per issue.
Full Story
Press release as follows:

Free Back Issues, Brothel Boys, and A Story about an Ordinary Girl

GEN Manga Announces the Release of GEN 4

GEN 4 will be available nationwide August, 2011

NEW YORK, NY GEN Manga Entertainment, Inc. announces the upcoming release ofGEN 4. (GEN 4 156 pages, black and white, $2.99) will be available August, 2011. Limited time discount available on subscriptions here: www.genmanga.com/discount

Indie Manga from the Tokyo Underground released simultaneously in North America and Japan, GEN, continues to stir the industry with new release of free back issues. GEN will now make all digital back issues free! GEN 4, released August 2011, will also mark the free release of GEN 2.

GEN 4 will introduce two exciting new stories. Souls, by Arisa Karino, will enter a newchapter: Sold out of the back door of an otherwise straight bordello to clientele with a taste for young boys, Wanu is the brothel boy of the famed Kamiki whorehouse. The Japanese aristocrats and samurai who frequent this brothel must be discrete and the despicable owner is much obliged to keep things that way. Meanwhile, Wanu's soul is trapped in a vessel on loan to the homo-erotic fantasies of important men.

GEN Manga - Sorako, by Takayuki Fujimura

Sorako, by Takayuki Fujimura, will also be introduced in GEN 4: Sorako lives an ordinary life. And this is an ordinary story. She has friends and family, loves her dog, thinks about life, and occasionally looks for work (kinda). These are the adventures into a typical girl's life.

In GEN 4 the serialization of KAMEN continues, where readers finally witness the mysterious masked man's powers unfold. The plot and characters continue to develop in the retro boxing drama of Wolf and the teens and aliens of VS Aliens continue to keep readers guessing as the story nears it's conclusion.

GEN stories are published nowhere else in the world. These stories are created by the elusive doujin creators in Tokyo's secret underground circles, otherwise known in the west as independent creators and hard core fans.

Presenting new indie manga circles from Japan, GEN, a monthly publication, will be released in the US and Japan simultaneously. Digital format and print editions for GEN are available now. Based in New York, GEN Manga Entertainment endeavors to publish new and unseen graphic work from Japan, being in the unique position to bring readers work first, more original and untamed manga will be sure to come!
