About Us


Art Square Group began as an advertising agency back in 1994, servicing various blue chip companies before subsequently diversifying into publishing. Sustained success consequently saw the establishment of GEMPAK STARZ ™, our graphic novel publishing arm, in 2001. Since then, we have grown to be one of the leading publishers of creative content in the country. By 2013, our output in Malaysia included over 250 publications of various genres from acclaimed local, regional, and international artists.


In November 2015, we joined forces with Kadokawa Corporation, Japan's leading entertainment content provider, and renamed ourselves Kadokawa Gempak Starz. Newly minted, we are ready to take the next step – from being Malaysia's biggest publisher of comics and graphic novels to becoming one of the world's most prolific creators of creative content. In line with current demand, we have launched our online book shop in Malaysia. This is to allow better accessibility to our creative content and materials.


With Kadokawa's 70 years of experience and know-how fuelling our rise, we are now positioned to grow into a broad-based media company boasting a diverse multiplatform portfolio, including animation, games, and other digital and multimedia content in addition to our comics, novels, and magazines. Armed with a comprehensive portfolio, we aim to continue providing creative content that is easily accessible.


At heart, we are a creative company. We are Kadokawa Gempak Starz.
