Sailor Moon manga is returning!

"It’s the title that broke manga in the US — no comic has had a bigger influence than SAILOR MOON, the manga/anime that kicked off the shojo manga boom, made it safe for girls to read comics and introduced the idea of cosplay to America in a big way.

Created by Naoko Takeuchi, and published as part of their MIXX magazine, Sailor Moon also put Tokyopop on the map in the late 90s. However the title has long been out of print in English, despite cries that it would find a ready audience.

At long last, Sailor Moon is coming back, this time from Kodansha, with a deluxe edition of the origianl 18 volumes in 12 books, and a first-ever US version of CODENAME: SAILOR V, the prequel."
