VIZ Media have announced a publishing partnership with Rooster Teeth, the Austin, Texas-based creators of RWBY, to develop new book titles for global release based on the internationally beloved series. Starting with the publication of a RWBY manga in 2017, more print releases are promised for the future, to expand the world of Remnant and the story of four girls brought together for one legendary purpose.
Beth Kawasaki, Senior Editorial Director for VIZ Media, said “The Rooster Teeth-VIZ Media partnership will showcase the strong creative vision and production expertise between our two entertainment companies to expand the vivid and exciting world of RWBY globally in bold new ways that fans will love.” Rooster Teeth Head of Animation Gray G. Haddock added that “Through RWBY‘s manga, readers will discover more about the RWBY universe and delve deeper into the characters and storylines they love, as well as go on all new adventures.”
We know we’re excited to see Ruby, Weiss, Blake, and Yang star in a manga created by RWBY‘s original masterminds, but what do you think? And where could the story go from here?
