This fall Rick and Morty: The Manga will be taking off with its first volume, and if you want a taste, there will be a place to lick it soon. In the next few weeks, comic shops across America will be receiving a pack of 20 preview comics, each 16 pages in length and suggested for an MSRP of free.
Late this fall Oni Press will be bringing us Rick and Morty: The Manga, aka the black-and-white adventures of a mad scientist and his family in a world of giant robots. Upon the initial announcement of this title last March, they let us show off a ten-page preview of the book, which you can still see here. Now they’ve let us look at five MORE pages! You can check them out below.
Zom 100: Bucket List of the Dead is a film based from a Manga and Anime from Haro Aso.
There’s a lot of Persona coming our way, suddenly. News leaked yesterday of two titles coming to consoles soon: a remake of Persona 3 and a Persona 5 spinoff game called Persona 5 Tactica. In the latter, you move stylized P5 characters on a grid, position them strategically, and attack with turn-based moves. It’s much like XCOM or those games where Mario meets the Rabbids.
Itaru Bonnoki, creator of the hit manga “The Vampire Dies In No Time,” has announced a short hiatus from producing his book. In an announcement made to Twitter this week, Bonnoki said he was putting his pen down for the time being. He did not cite the reason, but it’s implied to be a health thing — he said he needed to rest until his stomach was healthy enough to eat a Burger King Whopper. Yes, he specifically mentioned the Whopper.
This morning Kodansha USA announced three additional manga they plan to add to their library soon, although “soon” stretches a bit further in some cases than others. Two thirds of the announced titles will not be available for at least six months, but they are confirmed to be coming at least.
Any frequent viewer of Adult Swim knows the higher-ups have been lending their most valuable property to Japan for the country’s own take on it. Two Rick And Morty anime specials have aired on the channel and a full series is in the works for the future. Oni Press, the current producer of Rick and Morty comic books, figured it was time to explore a similar market.
The Attack On Titan anime is sure dragging its feet with the task of ending itself, but the manga is complete, if you want to know the ending now. In fact, if you were thinking about picking up the manga, this week is the perfect time, as Kodansha teams up with Humble Bundle to offer a ridiculous amount of AoT illustrated literature at a heavily reduced price.
Resident Evil Masterpiece Theater is a Japanese ad for Resident Evil 4 remake.
Call me crazy but I don’t think Square Enix’s recent obsession with NFTs and crypto is going to work out for them. With Forspoken failing to set the world on fire, and their recent president stepping down in disgrace, they need something new to rely on beyond Final Fantasy games. Maybe they can enter the manga market. Oh wait — they’re already doing that.
Tools Of Torment is the 27th Chapter of Dead By Daylight. It will be the first non-Licensed Chapter to have two Survivors. Past Chapters like Stranger Things and Resident Evil are licensed chapters. For the first time, the killer is technology based. She is either from the present day or the near future as her technologies are available now. The New Killer is ‘The Skull Merchant’. The Moment I saw her, she seem to fit for Dead by Daylight.
Last year Kodansha entered a partnership with ComiXology to offically bring to the US MF Ghost, Shuichi Shigeno’s sequel series to the iconic racing manga Initial D. MF Ghost began ruinning in the pages of Weekly Young Magazine in 2017 and its compilation manga has sold over 2.7 million copies in its home country.
