Any chance we can get some classics from Shotaro Ishinomori : 009-1 Genma Taisen Genshi Shounen Ryuu Happyakuyachou Hyouri Kewaishi Inazuman Jun - Shotaro no Fantasy World Kikaider Robot Keiji Sabu to Ichi Torimonohikae Cyborg 009
It's really unfortunate that Tokyopop only published the first 10 volumes of Cyborg 009. I would have loved to have read much more of the series. Given Ishinomori's relationship to Tezuka, and DMP's involvement with Tezuka titles, Ishinomori's works do sound like a good fit with DMP's lineup.
Is the fact that 009 is such a long-running title a hindrance to licensing and publishing it, and would it be a concern for fans that it might again not see a run to its completion?
In the case of 009, I think it's just that the more hands you get in a pot, the stickier it gets. Kikaider would, however, be particularly awesome. The young`uns should get a chance to so what they've missed.

I just discovered you can get several of Ishinomori's classics as digital comics through Comixology (available on the Apple Apps store). I picked up the first volumes of Kikaider, Skullman and Cyborg 009 each for $0.99 (on sale). There are several more volumes for each listed at roughly $4.99
Of course that doesn't mean I wouldn't still love to see several of these series in print from DMP... Kickstarter time again?
In terms of accessibility these games are cross-platform and have low hardware requirements. They work on almost any computer that has a web browser and an active Internet connection. Another advantage is that these games do not need to be installed on a computer. All one has to do is open a game's URL in a web browser, wait for it to load and start playing. That is why people play Flash games online from school, work, home and other places. League of Legends Boost League of Legends Elo Boost
