MARVEL, DEL REY TEAM ON X-MEN MANGA

Marvel Entertainment and Del Rey Manga, an imprint of Ballantine Books at the Random House Publishing Group, announced on Sunday plans to publish two new manga series based on Marvel's X-Men.

The manga, created with the cooperation and consultation of Marvel editors, will take the characters from the X-Men series and re-imagine them in a manga style.

The first project, scripted by the husband-and-wife team of Raina Telgemeier and Dave Roman, will focus specifically on the X-Men team. Indonesian artist Anzu will illustrate the two-volume series, which will go on sale in spring 2009.

Here's how Del Rey describes the book:

"It's the X-Men as you've never seen them before, with the storyline fashioned as a private school sh˘jo comedy. As the only girl in the all-boys School for Gifted Youngsters, Kitty Pryde, a mutant with phasing abilities, is torn between the popular Hellfire Club, led by flame-throwing mutant Pyro, and the school misfits, whom she eventually bands together as the X-Men."

A second manga series, to be published in spring 2009, will feature Wolverine.

"The X-Men are some of the most well-known characters in the world, and it's the strength of those characters -- along with strong and unique storylines -- that make the X-Men a perfect match for the manga form," said Dallas Middaugh, associated editor of Del Rey Manga. "It's an amazing opportunity, and we're eager to bring new interpretations to the fans through the prism of manga."
