Tokyopop and GoComics have announced an agreement where the two companies will work together to bring many o Tokyopop’s titles to mobile phones.
To kick off the event, GoComics will be branding the Tokyopop content under the GoComics Mobile Manga banner as well as a spin-off Tokyopop section.
â€œOur Mobile Manga is a great user experience and satisfies discriminating creators, editors and fans alike. A major reason for this is GoComicsâ€™ commitment to quality, simplicity, and an artistic adaptation that preserves the manga pacing while converting pages into a panel-by-panel format,â€ said TOKYOPOP Director of New Product Development Jeremy Ross. â€œWe look forward to building on the success of our initial mobile manga anthology with GoComicsâ€™ â€œfreedom of choiceâ€ offering â€” fans can now select their favorites from a wide catalog of titles.â€
Movie more titles to the digital realm is a pretty wise move from my standpoint, however I have not been overly impresse with trying to read comics on my RAZR 2. On the other hand, with the fantastic multi-touch screen found on the iPod Touch (which I own) and the iPhone, reading mobile comics is so easy.
