eigoMANGA Launches a VR Digital Comic Platform, ComX VR

eigoMANGA has announced that the company has released a virtual reality (VR) digital comic book platform for iPhone and Android devices, called ComX VR.

ComX VR is now available worldwide for iPhone and Android devices and is free to download from the Apple App Store and Google Play.

VR is one of the most exciting and fastest growing segments for digital media yet there has been no scalable platform for comic content, until ComX VR.

The ComX VR platform is the first of its kind that allows Android and iPhone users to read and collect digital comics immersed in a 360-degree environment, rather than being confined to the resolution of a mobile device.

ComX VR works with any Cardboard-compatible mobile VR headset and does not need to use any other external controllers because the app is developed with Gaze-input controls to allow for simple hands-free navigation and interactivity.

No sign up required for ComX VR. If users choose to create a free account, they have the ability to access and transfer their content across different devices.

Kodansha Debuts 5 New Digital Manga Series in April

Continuing its aggressive “digital-first” release schedule—debuting at least one new digital manga series every week—Kodansha Comics announced it will kick off 5 new manga series in April, with a decided bent toward high-school-set shoujo manga.

Kodansha Comics’s digital-first manga releases are part of an exciting new initiative begun last year to put a greater diversity of manga series into the market. Starting with Azusa Mase’s high-school drama You Got Me, Sempai! on April 3, April’s series debuts will be available at all of Kodansha Comics’s partner digital platforms:
You Got Me, Sempai! (debuting April 3), a breezy, beautifully rendered high-school romance about a freshman and her frosty (or is he just awkward?) sempai (Japanese title: Mairimashita, Sempai);

A.I.C.O. Incarnation (debuting April 10), the manga adaptation of the new biotech science-fiction anime produced by Studio BONES and currently streaming on Netflix;

Boarding School Juliet (also debuting April 10), another high-school romance, set against a background of a fierce dormitory rivalry—yep, it’s Romeo and Juliet set in modern-day Japanese high school (Japanese title: Kisyuku gakkou no Juliet);

Peach Mermaid (debuting April 17), a goofy, and somewhat off-color, comedy about a mermaid who makes the decision to walk amongst us in the human world—which goes perfectly well …  if she didn’t have one little problem … (Japanese title:Momoiro ningyo);

Defying Kurosaki-kun (debuting April 24), the last of this month’s high-school shoujo romances, involving one girl and the two guys she must choose between—including the mean, domineering Kurosaki-kun (Japanese title: Kurosaki-kun no iinari ninante naranai);

In addition to the 5 digital-first debuts, Kodansha Comics is also debuting Volume 1 of Fujita’s awkward otaku romantic comedy, Wotakoi: Love Is Hard for Otaku—which has recently been adapted into a new television anime series. Wotakoi debuts in both print and digital on April 17. There’s a lot of new manga coming from Kodansha Comics in April!

I Kill Giant’s Ken Niimura’s Umami #5 is Out Now on Panel Syndicate

On Friday, March 23rd, the release of the film I Kill Giants will introduce a new audience to the acclaimed graphic novel by writer Joe Kelly and co-creator and illustrator Ken Niimura, that inspired the film. The film’s release, in theaters, On Demand, and Digital HD, promises to bring new attention to the career of International Manga Award-winning and Eisner Award-nominated artist Ken Niimura. Today, ten years after the original release of the I Kill Giants comic book, Niimura is currently creating a wonderful, whimsical ongoing webcomic, Umami, which is published in monthly installments on Panel Syndicate. Food and cooking comics are all the rage in Japan, where Niimura currently lives, and Umami offers something new for American audiences.

Umami presents the story of a kingdom in trouble, and two cooks that are going to save the day using their cooking skills. It’s a crazy adventure story that combines high-fantasy, cooking, and lots of absurdity. Niimura charmingly illustrates the adventures of two girls, Uma and Ami. Uma is a cheerful and determined girl from a remote village, who always has an amazing dish ready to solve any problem… if only she wasn’t such a disaster. Ami is the future king’s chef, stickler and extremely proud, whose aim in the kitchen is to achieve the best taste following traditional techniques and recipes. Despite their many disagreements, together they’re an explosive team and no obstacle stands in their way. But how could anybody imagine that the destiny of the entire kingdom — complete with warriors, dragons, and beasts — would depend on their culinary skills?

Umami is hand-drawn and inked in a distinctive black and white style by Niimura and, like his art for I Kill Giants, is an evolution of the western comics and ‘80s and ‘90s adventure-style manga. Umami is available on Panel Syndicate in English & Spanish and fans pay what they want to read the stories. The fifth issue is out now on Panel Syndicate.

Peter Parker just survived his first year as the Amazing Spider-Man AND a year of high school! What is he going to do next? He’s going to Stark science camp!  A week indoors with the coolest technology in the world is a dream come true for Peter–and a bonanza for one Spider-foe who’s seriously upgraded his arsenal. Can Spider-Man keep the camp safe, and keep his identity secret from his first dormmate, while Peter Parker makes new friends and finishes his project on time?

Last Spring, Marvel Comics joined comiXology Unlimited, giving fans the ability to read over 10,000 titles including thousands of Marvel Comics single issues and collections as part of their comiXology Unlimited membership, featuring Super Heroes like The Avengers, Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Black Panther, Iron Fist, Guardians of the Galaxy and more.
