The first book they’ll be publishing is Magico Vento, or Magic Wind. Its creator and writer, Gianfranco Manfredi told a Bleeding cool source;

“The publisher is Epicenter Comics (San Diego) , distribution Diamond. I don’t know exactly when it will appear, ’cause they wait for the newcolor-edition, so i suppose after march 2013.”
