Los Angeles, CA (February 2008)- TOKYOPOP, the leader of the global manga revolution, is thrilled to announce the release of Princess Ai: Rumors from the Other Side. Part of the growing Princess Ai universe of properties, co-created by D.J. Milky and Courtney Love, Princess Ai: Rumors from the Other Side is a collection of untrue stories, rumors, gossip and bald-faced lies about Princess Ai and her cast of characters. Brought to you by a group of TOKYOPOP's top manga creators, these 12 all-new spurious stories take a totally twisted view of Princess Ai and her friends!

Who would dare print innuendo and blatant lies about international rock diva Princess Ai? TOKYOPOP would! And who would TOKYOPOP enlist to create such trashy rumors? A group of our hottest global manga creators, including Misaho Kujiradou (Princess Ai trilogy), Steve Buccellato (Battle of the Bands), Ashly Raiti and Irene Flores (Mark of the Succubus), Hans Steinbach (A Midnight Opera), Armand Villavert (Zapt!), Sara Winningham (Pride & Prejudice), Emma Viceli (Rising Stars of Manga UK), Mike Schwark and Ron Kaulfersch (Van Von Hunter), Erica Reis (Sea Princess Azuri), T Campbell and Amy Mebberson (Divalicious), Che Gilson, Brett Uher and Mara Aum (Dark Moon Diary), Pauro Izaki (Princess Ai of Ai-Land comic strips) and Kim Mi-Kyung (11th Cat for Ice Kunion).

According to TOKYOPOP Editor-in-Chief Rob Tokar, "Princess Ai: Rumors from the Other Side is another manga first for TOKYOPOP, but considering that Princess Ai has always been a groundbreaking project, 'unique' should be expected! Since Ai is an outspoken, outrageous, controversial celebrity (with wings!), it wasn't hard to find incredible stories from people who love her, hate her and love to hate her."

Verif-Ai the rumors when TOKYOPOP's much-anticipated Princess Ai: Rumors from the Other Side arrives in stores nationwide in March 2008!
