If you thought TokyoPop was making a bid to take over the US then you won’t be surprised by yet another mention of the Manga giant in the media. This time it’s in USA Today but at least it’s in conjunction with a web comic artist. Svetlana Chmakova has landed fantastic deal to draw a monthly strip for CosmoGIRL! called The Adventures of CG staring CG, a college sophomore who lives in Tokyo and is a spunky every-girl hipster heroine. From the article:
The new venture also helps boost the profile of the two-page strip’s creator, Svetlana Chmakova, 25. Her two manga-style online comics are ChasingRainbows (girlamatic.com) and Night Silver (wirepop.com). Her first full-length manga, Dramacon, will be published in October.
