Strip creep

King Features will be getting into the manga-influenced comic strip business, according to this piece at Editor and Publisher.

“‘My Cage’ is co-created by manga graphic novelist Melissa DeJesus and her writing partner, Ed Power.

“The strip — whose name spoofs the ‘MySpace’ social-networking site’s name — focuses on a group of mostly 20-something and 30-something anthropomorphized animals.”

Here’s a link to the King Features press release, and here, appropriately enough, is the creators’ MySpace page. DeJesus was the illustrator for “fan-service spectacular” Sokora Refugees.
