Boys’ love fans should look forward to Fireangels’ Lemon Law v1, an anthology that’s a bit more… hard core than Lime Law, which currently has two volumes out.  Those interested should check out Dee’s y!gallery for a few sample pages of her story.

Martina Peters, author/artist of K-A-E 29th Secret, also published by Fireangels, is one of the artists in Chibi’s “box 2”, but it’s been revealed that despite her history of boys’ love stories, her Chibi book, E-Motional, isn’t of that genre.  Carlsen does list it under “romance”, though, and provides the following description.

Jade daydreams a lot, and prefers sitting in front of his computer instead of meeting with friends.   One day he finds a little box with a clock and a note.  The little box supposedly holds a soul that needs to be given to its new host.  At first he thinks it’s a joke, but soon things grow serious…

Sascha Schätzchen, author of EMA’s Without Identity, has created a new “modern version” of an old medieval legend.  The manga, titled Pax Animae: Der Meister und der Mangaka (the master & the mangaka), will be available only in a limited edition of 300 signed copies, and can only be purchased online or at the Wallraf Richartz Museum shop.  It costs 19.90, and will be released April 16.  To order it online, you have to use the special order form found here.  The site also has sample pages for those interested.

Saint Ursula is pissed at how her martyrdom is being marketed, and returns to her hometown of Cologne, an angry heroine, to take revenge.

In other EMA-artist news, Alexander Völker (Catwalk) and DuO (Independent) will be appearing at AniGraz on April 14 from 2-11pm.

Chibi & Fireangels news

March 15, 2007

Leipzig Bookfair is approaching! A number of books are being released just in time for the event, including the first Chibi box. When they were first unveiled, a number of fans weren’t fond of the cover designs, and expressed their dislike in the Carlsen forums. Perhaps in response to that, the cover of Judith Park’s LUXUS has been changed (the old version is still visible on Amazon)… though hers was the cover most people said looked best!

Fireangels Verlag has added two licensed works to their line-up, which were originally published in English by Yaoi Press. Lime Law 2 should also be coming out this month, and for those interested in applying, Fireangels is always looking for more submissions (English page is here).

From Schwarzer Turm, Hungry Hearts v1 and Paper Theatre 5 should be coming out in time for Leipzig Bookfair as well.

The following non-German “global manga” have been licensed & are being published in Germany.

New Series from Carlsen & EMA

November 18, 2006

SplashComics notes that EMA has released the titles of two new series that should be coming out next summer.

Gott Gauss, by Viviane, a Swiss artist. The series apparently used to be posted as an online comic at SplashComics, so stop by if you’re interested in some sample images.

Musouka, by Diana Liesaus. The 19 year old from Dresden recently won the Connichi doujinshi contest, and had her short BL story Puppet 175 published in the Shinkan Special 2005. The story was later republished in Lime Law v1, by Fireangels Verlag. She’s on both Animexx & Y-Gallery.

In similar news, AnimeY reports that Carlsen Comics‘ new Manga Preview has a sample from a new pair of mangaka, more of whose work we’ll see in spring of next year. Franziska Leviathan and Tina Lindhorst had a short story in Manga Preview, titled The Same Pleasure as Every Year.

The Wild Side

Lost and Found – Zombiesmile – ISBN: 978-3-939484-04-2 – €10.90
Yaoi Newcomer
– various artists – ISBN: 978-3-939484-05-9 – €10.90

Fireangels Verlag has announced a new deadline for a “non yaoi/yuri anthology” (as they are primarily a boys love/yuri publisher, this is a pointedly non-gay collection).  Stories can either be male/female, or not romance-based at all.  A few theme-suggestions listed on the site are fairytales, fantasy, sci-fi, & surreal/supernatural.

As with the others, any submissions must meet the following guidelines:

A5 size (with a 4mm bleed), black & white
600 DPI .tif
10-60 pages (contact them if interested in doing a longer story)
submit script for approval before drawing out the story

Just to repeat- non-German artists & authors are welcome to submit!

EMA has posted a few wallpapers for fans of DuO’s new series, Independent, as a thankyou for joining their mailing list.  Enjoy!

Fireangels Verlag has decided to slim down the number of anthologies they’ll be putting out… Anyone who was interested in submitting should glance at these new deadlines & guidelines.
Rather than do themed anthologies, future volumes from Fireangels will be seperated by whether they’re BL or yuri. There hasn’t been enough interest in non-yaoi/yuri works for Fireangels to set a deadline for an anthology that wouldn’t be either of the two.
Current plans are for Lime Law to be released three times a year (the below “yaoi III” will be volume two, and “yaoi IV” will be volume three, etc). Yaoi 18+ (Lemon Law) will be released twice a year, and the yuri anthology (Lily) will be the same, if they get enough submissions.

Links will take you to bilingual guidelines posted on the Fireangels Verlag’s livejournal.


* December, 15st, 2006
YAOI III – “Man” meets Man, SciFi, Surreal/Supernatural
* short manga and stories (can be illustrated), BL

* February, 1st, 2007 Yaoi 18+
* short manga and (can be illustrated) stories, Yaoi

* May, 1st, 2007 YAOI IV – Fairy-Tales, Fantasy

* July, 1st, 2007 YURI III – Fairy-Tales, Fantasy, SciFi, Surreal/Supernatural, Other

Pink Psycho
attracted a lot of attention recently when they first presented samples from In The End at AnimagiC and Connichi.
Now the book is finally available, and the story will be sure to touch you. The manga is a dramatic interpretation of authentic statements from teenagers on diverse internet forums. The manga therefore mirrors the outlook on life shared by a whole generation- “there is no place for me in the world.”

Also new are a few updates by Fireangels. We’ve edited our recent post about submission guidelines to fit their changes. Lime Law v1 is also now available through Amazon.de, for anyone interested in buying it.
One addition of note, however, is a new anthology…


A more “adult” (NC17) version of their Lime Law anthology, Lemon Law will focus on more mature themes. More information can be found (in both English and German) by clicking the banner.
There are plans for a similar yuri anthology in the future, for those interested.

“K-A-E 29th Secret” v1 was Fireangels’ first venture into publishing, having a low first print of only 250 (the last of which was sold at last weekend’s Connichi). It’s clear that this is a first attempt, with awkward art and Comic Sans, but recent pages show some improvement. K-A-E was originally published as an online comic on Animexx, a German fansite, and up to volume 4 has been posted there.

Author: Martina “Chiron-san” Peters
ISBN: 3-939309-00-1 (was available through yaoishop.de & amazon.de)

Summary:
…what would you do if you no longer knew who you were?…

Kae, a 17 year old boy, wakes up in a lab. There, he’s told that he no longer has an identity, and he himself remembers nothing before the day of his awakening.

Did he even have a life?

He would give anything to regain his memories, because he seems to be the only one of the so-called “Genes” in the Center- which is what the research lab calls itself – who has to live locked up and can’t remember anything.

Driven by his thirst for knowledge, the boy manages to flee from the Center, and at first, fortune seems to smile on him as he finds people that help him and who he can trust. But then another Gene who fled from the Center shows up, and that starts a chain of events which drag Kae deeper and deeper into a wild hunt- one there seems to be no escape from.
