(San Jose, CA) – August 10, 2021: eigoMANGA launches a Kickstarter campaign to publish “Oldman” as a manga graphic novel in English. “Oldman” is an award-winning and internationally acclaimed series created by Taiwanese writer and illustrator Chang Sheng. The publication was originally published by Taipei, Taiwan-based Tong Li Publishing.
The story is about a queen who rules her country with an iron fist. Unmarried and without an heir, she adopts orphans as a way to prove that even commoners can reign as kings. Yet, as the years progress, she shows no sign of aging, while her orphans go missing. Only one man knows the dark secret to her eternal youth: Oldman, a bearded magician the queen has locked in her dungeon.
One night, Oldman escapes his prison cell and rescues a neighboring prisoner, Rebecca, a rebel whose arms and legs were amputated as punishment. Upon taking Rebecca to an underground doctor who fits her with mechanical arms and legs, they vow to take revenge on the Queen that wronged them.
“Oldman” won numerous awards such as the International Manga Award in Japan, as well the Golden Comic Award for Best Shonen Manga. “Oldman” Part 1 is projected to circulate to retailers on November 8th, 2021.
eigoMANGA is launching a Kickstarter campaign to cover the printing, shipping, and distribution cost of releasing the “Oldman” graphic novel to retailers for its November 8th launch date.
