Gardena, CA (July 20, 2009) – Digital Manga Publishing is excited to announce their special guest for Yaoi-Con 2009, prolific yaoi mangaka, Makoto Tateno! Makoto Tateno has long been a fan-favorite of the yaoi community, and she is pleased to be coming to the US to meet her fans in person this October!  Her published works in the US include: Hero Heel (Juné), Steal Moon (Juné), Blue Sheep Reverie (Juné), Angelic Runes (DMP), Red Angel (DMP), King Of Cards (CMX) and the much loved Yellow.  In another first for Tateno, Digital Manga Publishing will be putting out her first DokiDoki comedy title, Happy Boys, which revolves around the lives of five young men who work in a butler café, and was recently made into a Japanese television live-action comedy series. This will be Makoto Tateno’s first appearance at Yaoi-Con!

To coincide with Tateno’s US appearance, Digital Manga Publishing is also proud to announce the reissue of Tateno’s first yaoi title in the US: Yellow. Collected into two omnibus editions, the Yellow: Omnibus Edition v.1 collects the first two volumes of the series into one special collection, with some new content.  For fans who attend Yaoi-Con, they’ll get their hands on advances of this reissued title first, and they can get it signed in person by Makoto Tateno!

Yaoi-Con takes place over the Halloween weekend, October 30-November 1, in beautiful San Mateo. For more information on Yaoi-Con, including location, hotels, and registration, please visit their site at: www.yaoicon.com

Taki and Goh share just about everything – their apartment in the city, their job as elite drug “snatchers” and even dinner duty. But hot Goh wants to go much deeper undercover with his gorgeous partner. Too bad Taki doesn’t swing that way…or does he? If yellow is the warning color, will this team finally end up in-the-red (and in bed)? Boys will be boys, and the hot guys of Yellow are no exception. An illicit thrill-ride from cover to cover, this hip drama turns up the heat on every page and guarantees to get your heart fired-up! Back by popular demand, this limited edition omnibus collects volumes 1 and 2 of the original series, with some unseen artwork and unpublished content!
