New Series Has Drawn Rave Reviews From Japanese Readers And Launches In-Print And Digitally Under VIZ Media’s Shonen Jump Imprint In Summer 2015

San Francisco, CA, November 25, 2014 – VIZ Media, LLC (VIZ Media), the largest distributor and licensor of manga and anime in North America, notably expands its publishing roster as it announces the acquisition of the supernatural action manga (graphic novel) series, TWIN STAR EXORCISTS.

Created by Yoshiaki Sukeno, TWIN STAR EXORCISTS is set to launch in the Summer of 2015 and will be published in print and offered digitally under the company’s Shonen Jump imprint. TWIN STAR EXORCISTS is rated ‘T’ for Teens. The series, which has released 3 volumes to-date, is ongoing in Japan.

In the series, beings from the dark realm of Magano creep into our world and can only be expelled by talented exorcists. Rokuro is from a family of exorcists, but after a terrible disaster, he’d rather be a singer, a soccer player or anything else! He’s forced to own up to his incredible potential by the arrival of Benio, an exorcist who’s more than his match and stirs his competitive spirit. When neither can top the other in supernatural combat, they earn the title of “Twin Star Exorcists” – two supreme fighters fated to marry and birth the ultimate spiritual warrior. Will these rivals fall in love? The fate of two worlds hangs in the balance!

“We’re very excited to announce TWIN STAR EXORCISTS as a new manga series set to join our Shonen Jump publishing roster next summer,” says Hope Donovan, Managing Editor. “In Japan, it has become one of the most popular series in the Shonen Jump line of manga and the series scored very high among readers. We are looking forward to launching TWIN STAR EXORCISTS for a new legion of English-language fans around the world!”

Creator Yoshiaki Sukeno’s previous series, the supernatural manga comedy Binbougami ga!, was adapted into the anime Good Luck Girl in 2012.

"Just in time for Christmas, all your favorite characters are here: Santa, his reindeer, Merlin, the Devil himself and all his fellow devils, and of course a giant shirtless blacksmith. Merry Christmas?!" Michael J. Nelson of RiffTrax said.
From the strange and ridiculously colorful world of K. Gordon Murray comes the 1959 Holiday classic Santa Claus.  Made in Mexico and dubbed into glorious English, “Santa Claus” tells the story of Santa Claus, who lives in a big white castle above us in Geosynchronous Orbit and watches over us all in a way that would make the NSA jealous. It’s Christmas Eve, and on Earth poor little Lupita wishes for a doll.  Santa hears her wish and prepares for his yearly visit, helped by the heavily medicated Merlin the Wizard and Santa’s unintentionally creepy mechanical reindeer. Meanwhile, the Devil tries to foil Santa’s plans and sends his leotard-bedecked demon, Pitch, to turn the children against Santa and ruin Christmas. Tension mounts as Pitch endlessly plots to thwart Santa’s magical ride but his attempts are unsuccessful and Christmas is, of course, saved.
“It’s the season for giving and Rifftrax will be gifting loads of laughter this holiday season with their take on ‘Santa Claus,’” said Shelly Maxwell, executive vice president of Fathom Events. “We can’t wait to see what Mike, Kevin and Bill have in store for this, their 14th title with Fathom!”

Retail Price: $3.99
Author: Ed Brisson
Artist: Damian Couceiro
Cover Artists: A: James Stokoe (99%) B: Simon Roy (1%, Jackpot Variant) C: Trevor Hairsine (10 Years Cover) INCENTIVE D: Declan Shalvey INCENTIVE
WHY WE LOVE IT: Ed Brisson (Sheltered) is one of comics’ best new voices and we could not wait to work with him on an original series following his run on Sons of Anarchy. After hearing his pitch for a gritty, violent, sci-fi epic in the vein of The Dirty Dozen, we knew there was no one better to bring the criminal cast of characters to life than the other half of the Sons of Anarchy team and Ed’s Murder Book collaborator, Damian Couceiro.
WHY YOU’LL LOVE IT: Cluster is a series for fans of old-school, hard-boiled action. Brisson and Couceiro know how to tell stories about rich characters with criminal backgrounds, and the off-world setting allows them to tell personal stories with a massive scope. Have you ever wondered what a book starring all those lowlifes in the gutters of sci-fi havens like Mos Eisley would look like? Then we have the book for you.
WHAT IT’S ABOUT: In the distant future, as mankind discovers life on other planets, it needs soldiers to defend its colonies and outposts across the stars. In order to increase the number of boots on the ground, criminals are offered the opportunity to serve in the place of incarceration. But as wars wage on and more soldiers are needed, small-time crimes are given long-term punishments. When a group of prisoners serving their time as soldiers become stranded and abandoned on a war-torn planet, they’ll need to work together to survive and uncover the truth behind Earth’s role in deep space.

Retail Price: $3.99
Author: Ryan Ferrier
Artist: Devaki Neogi
Cover Artists: A. Tula Lotay B. Trevor Hairsine (10 Years Cover) INCENTIVE C. Marie Bergeron INCENTIVE
WHY WE LOVE IT: Punk rock isn’t dead...yet. Turf wars, breaking rules, crushing violence, and Black Flag—these are a few of our favorite things, and we can’t wait for Curb Stomp to straight-up knock our teeth out (in a good way).
WHY YOU’LL LOVE IT: Writer Ryan Ferrier (D4VE) is a creator on the rise, and newcomer Devaki Neogi’s art will hook you with its aggressiveness but keep you coming back with its heart. Curb Stomp is an unflinching, visceral look at the lengths one woman will go to protect her friends, her family, and her home—perfect for fans of Rat Queens and the seminal ‘70s cult-favorite film The Warriors.
WHAT IT’S ABOUT: Three gangs. Five girls. No way out. Machete Betty leads a small gang of women under the self-appointed task of protecting their home of Old Beach, one of  three boroughs  surrounding  a  rich  metropolitan  city. When Betty takes the life of a rival gang member in an act of self-defense, she sets off a chain reaction of retaliation, gang warfare, and unlikely allies. It’s up to the The Fever—Machete Betty, Derby Girl, Bloody Mary, Daisy Chain, and Violet Volt—to defend their turf at all costs.

Author: Madéleine Flores
Artist: Madéleine Flores
Cover Artists: A: Madéleine Flores B: Shelli Paroline & Braden Lamb (10 Years Cover) INCENTIVE C: MAiS2  INCENTIVE
WHY WE LOVE IT: Médeleine Flores’ tale of a smart, hilarious, and intensely capable little warrior enchanted us immediately with its unique sense of humor and manga-influenced look and feel. We couldn’t wait to bring it to you!
WHY YOU’LL LOVE IT: If you love the brand of kick-butt girl power that the Lumberjanes bring to the page each month, then this sword-wielding girl and her hilarious adventures will be exactly what you need to round out your pull list. Also, there are witches who turn everyone to hunks. What’s not to love?
WHAT IT’S ABOUT: Based on Médeleine Flores’ popular webcomic, Help Us! Great Warrior is about a very powerful Great Warrior (natch) who protects her village from evil-doers and looks great in her armor while doing it. Possessing great strength and even greater self-confidence, she’s ready to kick some butts and save everyone, especially hunky guys.



PLUNDER #1 (of 4)
Retail Price: $3.99
Author: Swifty Lang
Artist: Skuds McKinley
Cover Artists: A: Skuds McKinley B: Ramón K. Pérez (10 Years Cover) INCENTIVE C. Daniele Serra
WHY WE LOVE IT: Swifty Lang gave us a whole new look at werewolves with Feeding Ground, a terrifying tale packed with social commentary. When he told us he’d teamed up with newcomer Skuds McKinley for a story of horror on the high seas, we were all in.
WHY YOU’LL LOVE IT: BOOM! Studios and Archaia have been at the forefront of the horror comics revival, with titles like Feeding Ground, Curse, and Clive Barker’s Next Testament. Plunder is the next step in that evolution, as fans of Captain Phillips and The Thing will enjoy this mix of current events-inspired adventure and supernatural terror.
WHAT IT’S ABOUT: After facing off with an illegal Chinese vessel, a gang of Somali pirates tries to board what they think is a research vessel, only to find themselves in the midst of a massacre. As their worst nightmares become reality, the 14-year-old boy who went from translator to reluctant pirate not only becomes the key to survival, but must decide for himself how far he is willing to go in the name of self-preservation.

WHY WE LOVE IT: Thomas Siddell’s critically acclaimed and award-winning webcomic has fans all over the world, and the last printed edition completely sold out. With a new cover by creator Thomas Siddell and in softcover for the first time, the release of the first volume is finally available again for old fans and new readers alike!
WHY YOU’LL LOVE IT: We’ll let Neil Gaiman tell you all about it: “I was thrilled to hear that my favourite webcomic was going to be collected on paper. I wish that Antimony Carver and her adventures and mysteries and myths, not to mention her school, had been around when I was a boy, to shape and warp and twist my growing mind—but I don’t think you could ever grow too old to delight in Gunnerkrigg Court.”
WHAT IT’S ABOUT: Antimony Carver is a precocious and preternaturally self-possessed young girl starting her first year of school at gloomy Gunnerkrigg Court, a very British boarding school that has robots running around alongside body-snatching demons, forest gods, and the odd mythical creature. The opening volume in the series follows Antimony through her orientation year: the people she meets, the strange things that happen, and the things she causes to happen as she and her new friend, Kat, unravel the mysteries of the Court and deal with the everyday adventures of growing up. Available in softcover for the first time!



LOS ANGELES, Nov. 25, 2014 – In anticipation of the season two return of “Salem,” WGN America’s breakout hit original series, the network has released a haunting teaser trailer for the 13-episode season premiering in April.  The video features the ruthless Mary Sibley (Janet Montgomery, “Human Target,” “Made in Jersey”), Salem’s most powerful enchantress, declaring the Witch War that is at the epicenter of the all-new season.  In “Salem” season two, the Grand Rite triggered at the end of last season is now underway and death is in the air.  In order to bring her plan to completion, Mary must not only control Captain John Alden (Shane West, “Nikita,” “ER”) and the citizens of Salem, but also those lurking in the shadows who seek the power she wields.

“Salem,” called “perversely entertaining” by The New York Times, is a bold re-imagination of the infamous 17th century witch trials in colonial Massachusetts.  In the first season, Captain John Alden returned home after seven years at war only to discover that his true love, Mary, wed his old (and wealthy) nemesis George Sibley.  During his years on the battlefield, Mary has emerged as a true power broker in a Puritan town fully immersed in witch panic.

Throughout a fiery first season, filled with wicked deceit and shocking revelations, John and Mary found themselves navigating a supernatural world where paranoia, revenge, evil and hysteria reign. Ultimately, John risks his life for Mary, even after learning that she is the ruling witch of Salem who is at the center of all the mayhem plaguing the embattled village. 

“Salem” stars Janet Montgomery as Mary Sibley, Shane West as John Alden, Seth Gabel (“Fringe”) as Cotton Mather, Ashley Madekwe (“Revenge”) as Tituba, Tamzin Merchant (“Jane Eyre”) as Anne Hale, Elise Eberle (“The Astronaut Farmer”) as Mercy Lewis and Iddo Goldberg (“Mob City”) as Isaac Walton.

Created and written by Brannon Braga and Adam Simon, “Salem" is executive-produced by Braga, Simon, and Prospect Park’s Jeff Kwatinetz and Josh Barry.  Filmed on location in Shreveport, LA, the series is produced by Fox 21.
