The new series will start with the latest lineup of original manga created by eigoManga Studios and contributing artists. Joshua Baylock, president of Devil's Due, commented on the deal: 'For eigoManga the deal will amplify its publishing and distribution capabilities...for Devil's Due they (retailers) will see that we are finally moving into the manga market, although slowly, and adding even more diversity to our company lineup.'
The new Rumble Pak anthology will include contributions from novelist Steve Anzactz, Jeremy Ray, who was involved in the creative work for The Matrix and the Animatrix, and Natasha McGough, who is one of the writers for the new ABC TV Night Stalkers series.
