Beginning in spring 2006, Prima will publish six bi-monthly issues, each 32-pages in length. At the end of the series Prima will publish a 192-page compilation of all the books in the series.
In "Kameo: Elements of Power," as a young Elf, Kameo must master her new ability to transform into mystical warriors and harness their powers to save her people from Thorn, the evil Troll king.
The manga series will be written by award winning writer Sunmin Park and illustrated by acclaimed artist Hiroyuki Kitazume. Park is an accomplished writer/director/producer who at age 12 was awarded the Korea Times Best Young Writer award. Park recently co-wrote, produced and directed the English version of SKY BLUE, a groundbreaking multi-layered HD digital animation feature which premiered at the 2004 Sundance Film Festival. Park's producing credits also include THE OTHERS, starring Nicole Kidman and directed by Alejandro Amenabar, and THE EMPEROR AND THE ASSASSIN, starring Gong Li. Kitazume is renowned in the anime industry; his character designs, artwork and animation have appeared in the epic sci-fi Mobile Suit Gundam series as well as Moldiver and Vampire Wars.
"Prima is pleased to be working with two artists as accomplished as Sunmin Park and Hiroyuki Kitazume," said Debra Kempker, President of Prima Games. "They each bring a level of creativity and passion to the project, and when combined with the 'Kameo: Elements of Power' video game, the result is a manga of superior quality and style."
"Kitazume-san and I are thrilled to be working with Prima to bring the enchanting world of 'Kameo: Elements of Power' from the origins of Xbox 360 to life into the time-honored and beloved tradition of manga," said Sunmin Park.
