IN THE REAL WORLD, WHEN YOU VANISH INTO THIN AIR FOR A WEEK, PEOPLE TEND TO NOTICE
Title: The Iron Traitor
Author: Julie Kagawa
Published: October 29, 2013 Harlequin Teen
In the real world, when you vanish into thin air for a week, people tend to notice.
After his unexpected journey into the lands of the fey, Ethan Chase just wants to get back to normal. Well, as “normal” as you can be when you see faeries every day of your life. Suddenly the former loner with the bad reputation has someone to try for-his girlfriend, Kenzie. Never mind that he’s forbidden to see her again.
But when your name is Ethan Chase and your sister is one of the most powerful faeries in the Nevernever, “normal” simply isn’t to be. For Ethan’s nephew, Keirran, is missing, and may be on the verge of doing something unthinkable in the name of saving his own love. Something that will fracture the human and faery worlds forever, and give rise to the dangerous fey known as the Forgotten. As Ethan’s and Keirran’s fates entwine and Keirran slips further into darkness, Ethan’s next choice may decide the fate of them all.

Julie Kagawa, New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of the Iron Fey and Blood of Eden series of books for young adults, “My fans know that I am a huge comic, manga, and anime enthusiast, and I write in a very cinematic and visual manner in part due to my love of this medium”.
The monthly series starts this week in both print versions as well as eBooks. The 4-issue “the Iron King” comic book series features the art of Lidia Chan, written by Julie Kagawa and Sara Gundell.
The fans funded the series as part of an Indiegogo campaign.
In October, Bluewater is partnering up with Piglion Studios to develop an animated comic book version the 1st issue. To view a sample of the motion comic book cover: http://youtu.be/v4qzzhvVGlk
“The goal is to get people reading…simple. I was a reluctant reader growing up and comic books helped my reading skills. Comic books are not only for pop culture fun, but also can be used as a tool. Some of our biography titles are taught in schools”. said Bluewater publisher Darren G. Davis. ”Working one-on-one with Julie on the Iron King, the book will be very close to the novel. I guess that is why I am so passionate about this project”.
The book is being released with three different covers. Print copies of The Iron King can be ordered exclusively at Comic Flea Market here: http://bit.ly/XKXzyo
You can download these titles on iTunes, Kindle, Nook, ComiXology, DriveThru Comics, Google Play, My Digital Comics, OverDrive, Iverse, Wowio, Kobo & wherever eBooks are sold.

Btw. Guys this is not manga as in manga but it is a comics - yes, and yes manga means comics, but it isn't actual manga. And this is a graphic novel.
Will add more stuff later (on this post or I'll do another one).
