Dark Horse Comics Announces Four Manga Licenses

North American manga and comics publisher Dark Horse Comics revealed at its Anime Central panel that it has licensed the following manga:

  • Kentarou Miura’s Giganto Maxia
  • CLAMP’s RG Veda
  • Spike Chunsoft and Takashi Tsukimi’s Danganronpa: The Animation
  • Kengo Hanazawa’s I Am a Hero

Kentarou Miura published the Giganto Maxia mini-series in Hakusensha’s Young Animal magazine in 2013-2014.

Dark Horse’s release of RG Veda will be based on the current five-volume omnibus version from Kadokawa. Dark Horse will be releasing the series in three volumes, so each volume will be about 600 pages long. The publisher will release the first volume in August 2016.

Takashi Tsukimi launched the Danganronpa: The Animation manga based on Spike Chunsoft’s story in Kadokawa’s Shōnen Ace magazine in March 2013, and the manga ended in the same magazine in July 2014. Dark Horse will publish the first of four volumes in March 2016.

Dark Horse will release I Am Hero in a 2-in-1 omnibus format, and each volume will include color reproductions of the fully-painted color story pages that began each of the Japanese volumes. The publisher plans to release the first volume in April 2016.
