Manga are generally creator-owned works rather than publisher-owned like with major American comics.  It's why Masami Kurumada is able to publish Saint Seiya sequels/spin-offs in non-Shueisha magazines, even though Shueisha still has the publishing rights to the original manga.  Generally, mangaka don't try to seize the publishing rights to their series, but it does happen from time to time like with Makoto Raiku and Shogakukan or (more recently) Hiroyuki Takei and Shueisha.
