My New Manga Series, Announced at Tor.com

Okay, so here’s an announcement that I’ve been sitting on for a while, which I can finally tell you about:

I’m doing a manga series.

It’s a format I’ve been curious about for a while — we had planned a manga series around Old Man’s War a few years ago, but it had gotten hung up on contractual issues — so to be finally able to say that a project is under way is really exciting. In fact, I don’t think I’ve been this excited about a project for a whole year.

Tor.com has all the details, plus the absolutely fantastic cover art by artist Madeleine Rosca. Really, she has done a spectacular job, capturing the look and feel of the project. I simply could not be happier about the work she’s done.

So, what are you waiting for? Go! And I hope you love this manga project as much as I do. I expect great things from it. I can’t wait for you to see it.

Update: Some people have noted the date as questionable, so let me just say this: We know most major publishing projects aren’t announced on a Sunday, but we had reason to believe we were about to be scooped on our own project by a comics site. And of course we couldn’t have that. I hope this clears up any confusion.
