New Digital Only Manga Magazine Launched

Gen, a new title led by Editor-in-Chief Robert McGuire, has just released its first issue.

According to Robert’s interview in Manga Maniac Cafe, Gen is going to have a monthly release schedule in Japan and the US. Each issue will have original seinen and doujinshi manga, and there’s only going to be a limited print run.

Rather than go the usual path of reprinting existing comics, Robert found Japanese artists to create original manga for an American audience. The work was translated in house as it was created, and Gen works with the artists to make sure that the nuances of the story aren’t lost.
