Kodansha Comics USA is a manga publishing imprint. It is the American subsidiary of Japanese publisher Kodansha. The company was formed on July 1, 2008.[1] Their launching titles were the re-prints of Masamune Shirow's Ghost in the Shell and Katsuhiro Otomo's Akira manga, previously published by Dark Horse Comics.[2] On October 4, 2010, it was announced that manga publisher Del Rey Manga would be shut down. Kodansha Comics then started publishing in earnest, picking up many old Del Rey Manga titles, with Random House serving as the distributor.[3][4]
