Tokyopop StarCraft product advertisement

Tokyopop was the publisher of two series of StarCraft universe graphic novels, StarCraft: Frontline and StarCraft: Ghost Academy. The US division shut down May 31, 2011.[1][2]

As of December 2010, StarCraft: Ghost Academy: Volume 2 was available for sale on their website,[3] but it was later taken down as Tokyopop planned to revamp their online sales site.[4]

By 2011 Blizzard and Tokyopop had severed their relationship.[5] Tokyopop later shut down.[2] Instead, Cryptozoic Entertainment has taken over the manga series,[6] and sells the product through an iTunes app.[7]
