Dark Horse Comics announced at its San Diego Comic-Con 2015 panel that it will release an omnibus edition of Hiroaki Samura’s Blade of the Immortal manga. Editor Philip Simon noted that Dark Horse has not yet set a date for the release.
Each omnibus volume of the manga will include three original volumes, and each one will retail for US$19.99. The final omnibus volume will include Junichi Ohsako’s Blade of the Immortal: Legend of the Sword Demon novel. Dark Horse originally published the novel in 2009.
Simon noted at the panel that the first omnibus volume will “probably” use the cover from the original version’s second volume, “Cry of the Worm.”
