DC Comics Invests in Japanese Manga Startup
DC Comics is looking to cash in on the Manga furor in one way or another. Last week saw the release of DC Comics manga for girls and now comes the announcement that it has invested heavily in Flex Comics. Flex Comics will be managed by DC Comics Japan and will produce original manga content for the Web, mobile phones and print for worldwide distribution.
The goal is to serialize the content online, build up an audience and then go print.
