Sources at Tokyopop have confirmed to ICv2 that the U.S. manga publishing powerhouse is teaming up with a Japanese publisher to create a new manga series based on Paramount's Star Trek property. The project, which was revealed at Wizard World LA, is currently in the final approval phase at Paramount, and more details will be made available in the near future. Current plans call for the series to be written by U.S. and Japanese writers, with Japanese manga-ka providing the art. Tokyopop's Japanese publishing partner will have the rights for Japan and Asia with Tokyopop handling the rest of the world.
