Seven Seas Entertainment has announced an agreement with Speed Racer Enterprises to release an all-new original color comic based on the Speed Racer anime series from the 1960s.  Seven Seas will launch its line of 32-page color Speed Racer comic books with a five-issue mini-series debuting this July.


Established in 2004, Seven Seas began by publishing a line of OEL (original English language) manga-style trade paperbacks (see 'Seven Seas to Publish Original Manga'), but has expanded its list with Japanese manga (see 'Seven Seas Licenses Japanese Titles') and more recently with trade paperback edition of three popular Web comics (see 'Seven Seas to Publish 3 Webcomics').  The Speed Racer comic series will mark Seven Seas' first foray into publishing 32-page monthly American format comic books.
