The Dark-Hunters debut in YEN PLUS!


As you can see from this month’s awesome cover, someone new is making a splash (of blood) in this month’s YEN PLUS!
The Dark-Hunters: Infinity
, adapted from the young adult novels by Sherrilyn Kenyon, tells the story of a young Nick Gautier growing up in a rough part of New Orleans. Nick’s a decent guy who’s caught in a bad situation, but his world is about to get a whole lot worse when the Dark-Hunters introduce him to a supernatural foe that makes the mean streets of the city seem like a walk in the park!

This month’s Y+ magazine is positively packed with exciting new chapters of your favorite series!
Maximum Ride and the Flock are back in action! (Unfortunately for them, so are the Flyboys…)
The third volume of Witch & Wizard kicks off with four color pages!
And Soul Eater Not 16, coming at you simultaneously with the Japanese release, features another familiar (handsome!) face from the main series!

This month wraps up FOUR YEARS OF YEN PLUS! Thank you to every one of you who’s been a part of it along the way! We hope that the magazine introduced you to some great characters and stories over the years, and we are excited for new things to come…well, this month! And just over the horizon!

  1. Love the artwork! And only Nick can pull off looking bad ass in a floral Hawaiian shirt.

  2. Excuse me Miss. Abby.

    you explain to a person name fuu that the juhoun letter is going to be in this issue. Will the people who might not be able to see the note be able to read it sometime this soon? Like this month?

  3. To cool… Where can I buy this one????? Must have for my collection…

  4. And after being online for less than a day this post is now the fourth search result for “Soul Eater Not 16″ and climbing.

    Thank you for listening to my long-winded comment last month. :) As for me, I’ll be doing my part to link here on Tumblr and my livejournal as much as possible (which hopefully will help boost those Google rankings!).

    Also, I really enjoyed the first chapter of The Dark-Hunters! Can’t wait for more!

  5. Thanks for Another ^^
    Next time licence Gosick’s manga and novel.

  6. Hi Abby,

    Just an off topic question.

    What do you refer to the original western titles that are published in YP? Do you call them Manga, OEL Manga or comics?

    There seems to be a big grey area about it.

    I personally would still call them manga if it were up to me – as I believe it’s the style. I mean ‘a manga influenced or styled comic’ just seems too long and unnecessary.

  7. More on Acheron and less on Nick. He’s a pansy. Well at least in my opinion. No trial by fire for that boy. Yes he’s suffered. But no warrior by any means.

  8. YES!!!!!*cries tears of joy*About time!!! Been super waiting to see if the rumors were true!! NICK RULES!!!!!

    Our senior editor contributes a letter to every issue of Yen Plus, which can be read by subscribers to the magazine. However, Deb Aoki from About.com interviewed JuYoun following the talent search, something you may like to read: JuYoun Lee on Yen Press’ Talent Search, Plus Tips for Manga Creators

  10. Will this be published in separate manga books as a series as well? :D

  11. @Arrow “Manga” is just the Japanese word for “comics,” so we generally don’t use it for our original titles because…they’re not Japanese! Around here, we call them “The Original Titles” to differentiate them from the licensed properties, but you can call them whatever you like!

  12. @Kinkyo
    The Dark-Hunters: Inifinity will absolutely be collected and made available as a book!
