Yen Press just announced some really terrific licenses. Here are the two that make me giddiest:
Fumi Yoshinaga’s Not Love But Delicious Food was originally serialized in Ohta Shuppan’s Manga Erotics F, and it’s about a food-obsessed boys’-love manga-ka. So basically there’s almost no way it won’t be awesome. This will surely sell tons of copies, and then publishers will engage in cage matches for the right to license What Did You Eat Yesterday?
Émile Bravo provided the illustrations for Jean Regnaud’s beautiful My Mommy Is in America and She Met Buffalo Bill (Fanfare/Ponent Mon), so I’m eager to read Goldilocks and the Seven Squat Bears, a funny take on some classic fairy tales.
