It was only a matter of time.
While it was mildly discussed at SDCC and other conventions this fall, it wasn’t until this past weekend’s New York Comic Con we got our first look at the collaborations between Marvel Comics and Del Ray Manga.
Due to hit shelves in Spring 2009, Marvel aims to grab the manga market with two titles. The shonen styled Wolverine, and the shojo themed X-Men.
Here’s a look at Wolverine from his self titled manga, plus the adorable Kitty Pride and (omg!) Beast from X-Men.
Blog@Newsarama has more details on these books, including looks at Sabertooth and Nightcrawler, from Wolverine and X-Men respectively.
You know they’re going to merch the hell out of this Totoro-styled Beast.
