21:25:27 <bay|NYCC|Vertical> and that's it for us..
21:25:36 <bay|NYCC|Vertical> we got about 20 min or so for q&a
21:25:44 <bay|NYCC|Vertical> once again...raise your hand
21:26:55 <bay|NYCC|Vertical> our blackjack is one of the more complete ones
21:27:05 <bay|NYCC|Vertical> q: chi's continuing?
21:27:33 <bay|NYCC|Vertical> a: kinda winding down...it would have been if it wasn't so popular here...
21:29:00 <bay|NYCC|Vertical> q: worries now that Chi is winding down? a; high hopes for gto
21:29:11 <bay|NYCC|Vertical> think that's why this titles has sakuran and 5cm/s
21:29:20 <bay|NYCC|Vertical> not going to burn it up, but we have hopes
21:29:40 <bay|NYCC|Vertical> we have a couple of titles we're going after that much like GTO, you wouldn't have thought vertical, but that's how we're going to start balancing out
21:29:46 <bay|NYCC|Vertical> and give us more strength
21:29:57 <bay|NYCC|Vertical> Q; didn't japanese sakuran have foil?
21:30:24 <bay|NYCC|Vertical> A: maybe purple trim if it's a hardcover, we've checked prices on foil...and...it's very expensive
21:30:32 <bay|NYCC|Vertical> and it's almost like a choice between color pages and the foil
21:31:10 <bay|NYCC|Vertical> Q: with end of blackjack/spica, do collection?
21:31:32 <bay|NYCC|Vertical> A: mendelson is in favor of a box set for black jack..there are logistic issues
21:31:40 <bay|NYCC|Vertical> it's also 17 vols and huge... i know others can do it
21:32:00 <bay|NYCC|Vertical> Q: picking up more abandoned licenses from tokyopop
21:32:08 <bay|NYCC|Vertical> A: thought about it...everyone has to
21:32:19 <bay|NYCC|Vertical> I was kinda surprised to here that Alice was announced today
21:32:39 <bay|NYCC|Vertical> you noticed that we picked up GTO and that was negotiated before their demise and...resurrection.. i guess
21:32:48 <bay|NYCC|Vertical> maybe some authors there that are tokyopop authors
21:32:55 <bay|NYCC|Vertical> Q: Going into digital?
21:33:04 <bay|NYCC|Vertical> A: definitely thought about it
21:33:26 <bay|NYCC|Vertical> we're in infancy stage, just signed a digital distro contract with randomhouse
21:33:35 <bay|NYCC|Vertical> focus will be novels
21:33:46 <bay|NYCC|Vertical> we have to look at the numbers and see what will be cost effective
21:33:56 <bay|NYCC|Vertical> and our best selling book is a color book
21:34:11 <bay|NYCC|Vertical> i can't say when
21:34:17 <bay|NYCC|Vertical> if we are still around next year, we'll give you a better answer
21:34:28 <bay|NYCC|Vertical> in the coming seasons, we'll finally begin to figure this out
21:34:40 <bay|NYCC|Vertical> Q: Otakon...special edition of blackjack?
21:34:50 <bay|NYCC|Vertical> A: we were thinking about it, we still have to look into it more
21:34:59 <bay|NYCC|Vertical> and it would be combination of some of the unpublished stories
21:35:05 <bay|NYCC|Vertical> the totally sealed 5 ar eout of the question
21:35:24 <bay|NYCC|Vertical> when it was originally published, there were some chapter titles that weren't included in ours that we might do
21:35:29 <bay|NYCC|Vertical> and there are essays and articles that we might do
21:37:54 <bay|NYCC|Vertical> Q: story of sakuran?
21:38:09 <bay|NYCC|Vertical> Q: message to adolf... reprint of the first one that viz came out with?
21:38:22 <bay|NYCC|Vertical> A: New translation, new covers, new packaging
21:39:04 <bay|NYCC|Vertical> Q: The controversial work that he did get released?
21:39:10 <bay|NYCC|Vertical> A: 5 that will never be released...
21:39:22 <bay|NYCC|Vertical> others may come out
21:41:25 <bay|NYCC|Vertical> (asking the audience again about finding books again)
