Last week the good folks from Seven Seas sent us details of three new web comics in a manga style. They are keen to promote the title as manga, even though the authors are not Japanese, some more precise companies would say that this is work in a manga style, or influenced by manga.
The art for all three web comics is of a high standard and we recommend you take a look.
Press release as follows:
SEVEN SEAS LAUNCHES 3 NEW WEBMANGA
(LOS ANGELES, July 7, 2006) - Seven Seas Entertainment announced today the debut of three new web manga on Gomanga.com - Hollow Fields, Moonlight Meow, and The Outcast! This exciting new trio of series joins Seven Seas’ fan-favorite harem comedy Aoi House, which also appears in Newtype USA each month as an exclusive color 4-panel comic strip.
Serialized in the popular web manga format, a new page of each series will be posted every Monday, Wednesday and Friday at Seven Seas’ website, www.gomanga.com. As with all Seven Seas titles, all three new series will be published individually in book format in late 2006 and early 2007.
