LITTLE BUTTERFLY OMNIBUS, Rated M+ (for ages 18+), MSRP: $29.95, Available: February 15, 2010, 5.87″x 8.25″, 560 pages!, June’ Imprint

Kojima’s friendly attitude and upbeat, playful innocence help to guarantee his status as a well-liked boy. But the brooding Nakahara is the exact opposite! A shy wallflower, he seems aloof and is constantly alone…until Kojima suddenly steps into his dark, painful world. When the time comes to take flight, will the two boys simply escape to a fantasy free of pain and suffering, or can they break out and soar into a bright, exciting future of their own? Little Butterfly spreads its wings and sets off on a flight path full of love, longing and plenty of tender moments. Watch as a brand-new friendship slowly grows from a fragile bond to a forceful partnership between two distinct and special souls. Even the smallest of creatures dream of soaring beyond the mundane world!

YELLOW: OMNIBUS EDITION VOL. 1, Rated M+ (for ages 18+), MSRP: $19.95, Available: November 18, 2009, 5.87″x 8.25″, 385 pages!, June’ Imprint

Taki and Goh share just about everything – their apartment in the city, their job as elite drug “snatchers” and even dinner duty. But hot Goh wants to go much deeper undercover with his gorgeous partner. Too bad Taki doesn’t swing that way…or does he? If yellow is the warning color, will this team finally end up in-the-red (and in bed)? Boys will be boys, and the hot guys of Yellow are no exception. An illicit thrill-ride from cover to cover, this hip drama turns up the heat on every page and guarantees to get your heart fired-up! Back by popular demand, this limited edition omnibus collects volumes 1 and 2 of the original series, with some unseen artwork and unpublished content!

YELLOW 2: EPISODE 1, Rated M+ (for ages 18+), MSRP: $6.95, Available: November 18, 2009, 5.13″x 7.19″, 64 pages, June’ Imprint

Taki and Goh, the elite drug “snatchers” are back! In July of 2005, DMP introduced one of the most popular creator & ground-breaking series: YELLOW to the yaoi industry, cementing Tateno as a yaoi fan favorite. Fans have eagerly waited for more, and finally, Makoto Tateno has created a mini sequel series starring her two beloved characters, which has never been published in print, until now!
