Graeme 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."
