DMP, Shinshokan, Oakla Shuppan and Taiyo Tosho Announces Joint Publication Deal

Anime! Anime! and PWCW report that Digital Manga Publishing has signed a new co-labeling contract with Japanese publishers Shinshokan, Oakla Shuppan and Taiyo Tosho:

All titles licensed by DMP from these publishers will carry the original Japanese publisher's logo as well as the DMP logo. "This has never been done within the manga industry [in the U.S.],” DMP president and CEO Hikaru Sasahara said.

As a result of the contract, DMP will provide booth space for the Japanese publishers during Anime Expo, SDCC and NYCC for promotional purposes. DMP will also represent the companies online with a new website that's currently under construction.

Currently DMP is looking for more publishers interested in this co-labeling deal.
