The Evidence Piles Up

Need more proof that Manga will one day rule the world:

Entertainment website ICv2 reports that anime publisher Tokyopop is working with an unknown Japanese publisher on a STAR TREK manga series. According to the site, Paramount Pictures is about to sign off their approval on the product. American and Japanese writers will provide the stories for the TREK manga, with no names of talent revealed as of yet.

Details on what epoch of STAR TREK the manga series will be set in, or featuring which characters from the movies or television series, also remain unknown at the present time.

Yeah, I think that about does it. We're talking about the king of Manga, at least in the U.S. taking one of the biggest franchises in the country and turning it into a Manga series. How freakin' cool is that? Yeah, Trek isn't as big as it once was, but come on, everyone knows at least three people who think it's the greatest thing ever. This isn't like the Marvel characters done by American Manga artists, this will be true to the artform, and I for one think it's flippin' brilliant.

Oh, and that's from, feel free to check it out for yourself, links to the right.
