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.

“Our Mobile Manga is a great user experience and satisfies discriminating creators, editors and fans alike. A major reason for this is GoComics’ commitment to quality, simplicity, and an artistic adaptation that preserves the manga pacing while converting pages into a panel-by-panel format,” said TOKYOPOP Director of New Product Development Jeremy Ross. “We look forward to building on the success of our initial mobile manga anthology with GoComics’ “freedom of choice” offering — fans can now select their favorites from a wide catalog of titles.”

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.
