When I learned that Black God is licensed by Yen Press ( ) I visited The Book Depository to order it ( showbook.php?id=0759523495 ) . But I saw that the publisher wasn't Yen Press but...Little, Brown Book Group ( ). But neither at Baka-Updates Manga nor at Wikipedia and AnimeNewsNetork I have read anything about this publisher (which I didn't know it publishes manga). Both at the three sites says only about Yen Press. And not only that, but on other online shops like JustManga and it says that the publisher is Yen Press.

What's going on here? Is by any change Yen Press part of Little, Brown Book Group? Because when I checked on the catalog with the rest of the graphic novels (aka manga) that Little, Brown Book Group publishes were all manga that Yen Press publishes ( ).

Any help, please?

yes press is a division of the Hachette Book Group which owns Brown, Little. the group is owned by time warner (well shit). in case i fucked something up, heres the wiki article:
i think that will clear that up.
