IDW International to Represent TOKYOPOP’s Vast Catalogue of Manga IP

Today, IDW Publishing and TOKYOPOP announced that IDW’s international arm will be managing the TOKYOPOP foreign rights catalogue for non-English language markets. IDW International oversees all international licensing of the diverse IDW catalogue and its partners, which continues to grow year after year. TOKYOPOP’s foreign rights catalogue consists of over 100 manga and graphic novel IPs featuring a diverse range of characters and stories from talented creators worldwide. 

Founded in 1997 by media entrepreneur Stu Levy, TOKYOPOP, part of POP Media Holdings, established the market for manga in North America, introducing the term to the English language in the process. Over its history, TOKYOPOP has published thousands of books, distributed anime and Asian films on home video and television, licensed merchandise to consumer goods companies, created graphic novels of major brands, and led the way digitally in social media, e-commerce, and user-generated content.

“We’re excited to be working with IDW to bring TOKYOPOP titles to audiences worldwide,” said Levy. “Manga has become an international phenomenon and as an ever-evolving pioneer in the space, we’re thrilled to reach fans across the globe.”
 
“We couldn’t be more thrilled to welcome TOKYOPOP to our growing catalog of titles represented by IDW International abroad,” said IDW President and Publisher Greg Goldstein. “Our mission with IDW International has always been to be a worldwide content distributor and this cements that goal even further.”
 
As a welcome addition to the rapidly growing division representing a wide range of publishers and brands, TOKYOPOP joins Oni Press and Archie Comics in working alongside IDW International.
