Svetlana Chmakova’s Dramacon returns!
Global manga publisher and media brand Tokyopop is celebrating the 15th anniversary of Eisner Award nominee Svetlana Chmakova’s debut title with a collector’s edition release of Dramacon. This special edition will feature over 600 pages of beautiful artwork, a brand-new cover design, and a never-before published glimpse into Svetlana’s creative process.
Originally published as a manga trilogy beginning in 2005, the drama/comedy Dramacon follows a group of friends through three years at a local anime convention. With classic coming-of-age teenage themes in mind, Dramacon is well-positioned for fans of Svetlana’s work who are looking for something more in the line of young adult (YA) stories.
Christie, an amateur writer and full-time fan, is attending her first anime convention with her artist boyfriend to promote the manga they created together! But when she unexpectedly falls for a mysterious cosplayer, things get a little… well… complicated. What do you do when the person you’re falling in love with is going to be miles away in just a matter of days and you might not see them for a whole year? Take a trip to Yatta Anime Convention, where laughter, heartbreak, drama and excitement come together!
