March 2004 - RUMBLE PAK and Rising Stars of Manga compete for American Manga artists at the Wizard World LA.
eigoMANGA and TOKYOPOP will be meeting with American manga hopefuls at this year's Wizard World LA convention in LA this weekend. San Francisco's eigoMANGA publishes a monthly comic book series called RUMBLE PAK while LA's TOKYOPOP publishes an annual graphic novel called Rising Stars of Manga. While RUMBLE PAK and Rising Stars contrasts in several ways, both publications are platforms for emerging American manga artists.
Wizard World LA will enable soliciting artists to compare and pitch to both publications. Both eigoMANGA and TOKYOPOP will be eagerly looking through, signing, and working with the best submissions at the convention because both publishing groups want to lead the new American manga genre.
