15:33:09 <bay|AB|Vertical> they are up to 3-4 a month after before being 1 per month
15:34:05 <bay|AB|Vertical> Q&A
15:36:44 <bay|AB|Vertical> Q: Are you able to speak about what the next Tezuka series is?
15:36:50 <bay|AB|Vertical> A: Hasn't been decided yet.
15:38:40 <bay|AB|Vertical> Hopefully will be shorter than BJ
15:38:59 <bay|AB|Vertical> Q: How many volumes is Ayako?
15:39:26 <bay|AB|Vertical> A: originally 3 in japan, then re-released in 2, we'll be doing 1 vol hardcover
15:39:33 <bay|AB|Vertical> Q: Chi tie-in's?
15:39:54 <bay|AB|Vertical> A: Working on it, we'll probably be streaming stuff on our website... we're talking about merch with the license holders
15:41:12 <bay|AB|Vertical> Q: What is Chi-speak?
15:42:08 <bay|AB|Vertical> A: Chi-speak is inspired for tweety bird in loony toons... and they had a very specific way they wanted it done in Japan.
15:44:24 <bay|AB|Vertical> They worked with the JP editor on the translation in general.
15:45:46 <bay|AB|Vertical> (They are polling the audience again)
15:47:17 <bay|AB|Vertical> Q: License rescues?
15:47:44 <bay|AB|Vertical> A: Looked at a couple... the question comes up about how you handle them... reprint like YP or just continue like DR
15:47:56 <bay|AB|Vertical> and right now, a lot of the titles that need rescues are long
15:48:07 <bay|AB|Vertical> that's a big risk for us
15:49:14 <bay|AB|Vertical> Q: Relationship to other companies?
15:51:31 <bay|AB|Vertical> A: (talking about his individual ones...and company ones....and japan)
15:52:07 <bay|AB|Vertical> (side hand note above that Kodansha USA news will be coming)
15:54:14 <bay|AB|Vertical> (now handing out the "sexy" 2010 catalogue)
15:54:19 <bay|AB|Vertical> Q: Cookbooks?
15:54:29 <bay|AB|Vertical> A: We were going to release one in June called gumi fun...
15:55:14 <bay|AB|Vertical> but not releasing it after a series of events
15:55:43 <bay|AB|Vertical> They will be releasing cook books next year
15:57:52 <bay|AB|Vertical> Q: Moving into digital distribution?
15:58:05 <bay|AB|Vertical> A: A little complicated.... random house is a little up in the air about it
15:59:12 <bay|AB|Vertical> the deal there is until apple has enough penetration, enough machines in the market, and the rest of the publishing industry has seen enough returns... they aren't going to be jumping in
16:00:55 <bay|AB|Vertical> one of the problem with digital distribution is that they get it as the sales comes in instead of when the order comes in
16:01:09 <bay|AB|Vertical> having the money come up front means they can do what they do
16:01:23 <bay|AB|Vertical> thank you for coming
16:01:25 <bay|AB|Vertical> end
