reports that an
astute Newsarama poster
noticed some similarities between the
covers for Marvel's "Marvel Age" books and those from another company:
"Wow. For a second I thought I was looking at Tokyopop
books. Way to rip off a cover design, Marvel!"
Oh, come on: I think this is just another typical exaggeration on
the part of a Newsarama poster. The Marvel Age covers look nothing
like Tokyopop's cover design:
In other news, Marvel now reports that the name of the imprint will be
changed from "Marvel Age" to "Kyotopop."
