Greetings, Marvel fans! Marvel has made the headlines since it has been claimed that the entertainment company is working in a new direction! It’s been reported that Marvel is working on a manga series based on its iconic Marvel Comics characters. The company recently announced a partnership with VIZ Media, in which the two companies would collaborate on a “new epic series.”
This is for the time that the two entertainment behemoths have been working together on a new project that will include beautiful Marvel heroes in their own manga. According to rumors, the first new manga Marvel film would be titled “Marvel Meow” by Nao Fuji and star Captain Marvel’s cat/flerken called Chewie, who will be taking up on Marvel Universe.
What is Marvel Meow Manga About?
Alongside these announcements, it’s also been confirmed that the collaboration is further extended to future projects and a project which is about Deadpool: Samurai. The series is said to be introduced by translating into English for the first time.
For those who don’t know, Sanshirou Kasama and Hikaru Uesugi created Deadpool Samurai and gained massive popularity after publishing in 2021! And, also the newly published comic got so popular that the comic got its name for being the “publisher’s most popular series of the year”. This was seen by comparing with other popular comics like My Hero Academia’s All-Might joined the Merc with a Mouth in medieval Japan.
The first and the second chapters for the new Marvel comic had reported being read by over a million times by the audience and has received positive acclaim, which made the comic to be a huge achievement compared to the last North American comic to sell over a million copies was Star Wars 1 in 2015. Even though Deadpool: Samurai was available for free on Shonen Jump, the popularity of the comic demonstrated that combining Marvel and Manga may be a fantastic strategy in the future.
Marvel Meow is Marvel and VIZ Media’s debut manga, written and illustrated by Nao Fuji, who previously worked on a series of Chewie comics and was inspired by Marvel’s covers. Chewie, an extraterrestrial cat, is stated to be the core of the manga as she encounters some familiar characters and causes havoc in the lives of both heroes and villains. Spider-Man, Iron Man, Galactus, Thanos, and, of course, Deadpool will be among the series’ characters.
The second major news was the release of an English-translated version of Sanshirhou Kasana and Hikaru Uesugi’s Deadpool: Samurai. This is a huge and unexpected announcement: a hugely popular narrative is coming to North America in an official English translation.
Sarah Fairhall, editorial director at VIZ media, expressed her delight at the prospect of bringing Marvel heroes to the world of manga in North America. At the same time, Marvel’s vice president of licensed publishing stated that the company is looking forward to further collaborations with VIZ media.
Viz is the ideal partner for preserving Marvel’s distinct and thrilling narrative tradition. We’re pleased to be collaborating with Viz to bring our beloved characters to even more manga fans across the world after the huge success of the Deadpool manga last year.
Release Date of Marvel Meow Manga
This news has piqued fans’ interest, and many are anticipating more such announcements for future collaborative ventures. But, for now, we have to come to know that the upcoming manga series Marvel Meow will officially make its way to stores and online book platforms on October 12th of this year. Also, if you are a massive fan of Marvel comics, then currently, the comic is also available for pre-order registration.
