MIXX'S SAILOR MOON
MANGA IS THE NUMBER 1 GRAPHIC NOVEL OR TRADE PAPERBACK IN AMERICA!
Los Angeles, June 18, 1999 -- It's official, the public loves Sailor
Moon! According to Diamond Comic Distributors, Inc.
Sailor Moon #3 ranks number 1 in May's "Graphic Novel and Trade Paperback"
category -- outranking such classics as Batman, Spawn, and The Flash.
The engaging story of Bunny (an average girl who hates school and loves
sleeping, boys, and videogames) who discovers that she is really Champion
of Justice Sailor Moon, has captured the hearts and imaginations of children
across the world. Now, Sailor Moon is ready to use her Crystal Powers
to entrance America. Filled with non-stop action, adorable illustrations,
and the classic story of good vs. evil, it is no wonder that children
across the globe have fallen in love with our reluctant super hero.
Mixx Entertainment holds the exclusive American publishing rights to Sailor
Moon and has always seen the potential for this unlikely superhero. Chapters
of Sailor Moon were featured in Mixx's first magazine publication MixxZine®
and now runs in every bimonthly issue of their innovative cyber-teen girl
magazine SMILE™. Mixx will be releasing even more exciting Sailor
Moon manga, comics, and novels for eager readers soon.
