VANCOUVER (February 19th, 2014) – Hello to all of our newsletter subcribers and Arcana Fans! We are hoping you are having a great 2014 so far! We wanted to let everyone know the awesome stuff that is happening and what is coming this year from Arcana 

First of all, we want to announce that 2014 marks our 10th year as a publisher and a company. We are very proud at how far we have come in these 10 years producing over 250 graphic novels! Starting off with just a single issue of Kade, Arcana now owns the largest library of characters, comics and graphic novels in Canada, and one of the largest libraries in the world!

Also in our 10th year, Arcana just opened Arcanamation. Arcanamation is an animation studio already with two projects under our belts. Kagagi, our first animated television series, will air thirteen 22-minute episodes on APTN starting this fall. Our team will then move onto the animated feature film Pixies, both titles based on the Arcana graphic novels. Kagagi, created by Jay Odjick, also has a special guest appearances by The Intrinsic. All belonging under the Arcanaverse, numberous characters can make a cameo from The Intrinsic, and Kagagi, including Kade, Kore, Philosopher Rex, Candice Crow, just to name a few.
