VIZ Media Launches New Manga Spin-Off Series My Hero Academia: Vigilantes

VIZ Media announces a new series set in the world of the bestselling manga series My Hero Academia with the release of My Hero Academia: Vigilantes on July 3, 2018.

The new comedy-action series My Hero Academia: Vigilantes has been highly anticipated by manga readers. The series is rated “T” for Teens and will be published in print and digital editions under the Shonen Jump imprint. The print MSRP for Volume 1 will be $9.99 U.S. / $12.99 CAN. Digital editions will be available via viz.com and the VIZ Manga App, as well as from the NOOK, Kobo, Kindle, iBooks, comiXology, and Google Play stores.

My Hero Academia: Vigilantes features story by Hideyuki Furuhashi and artwork by Betten Court and is based on original concepts by My Hero Academia series creator Kohei Horikoshi. Future volumes of the series will be published every four months.

My Hero Academia: Vigilantes is set in a superpowered society, where there is nothing ordinary about evil anymore. Heroes, trained and licensed to protect and defend the public against supervillains, stand above all the rest. Not everyone can be a hero, however, and there are those who would use their powers to serve the people without legal sanction. But do they fight for justice in the shadows, or for reasons known only to themselves? Whatever they fight for, they are called…vigilantes.

My Hero Academia: Vigilantes depicts the adventures of self-styled heroes who fight evil and defend the innocent in spite of not having the coveted Heroes License,” says Michael Montesa, Editor. “Dive into this exciting new series that expands the world of My Hero Academia this summer!”

    Well, that just seems to undermine the core concept of MHA which is that ordinary people don’t use their powers to fight but wait for heroes. I’m not sure a spin-off should detract from a core concept in the original but I guess there’s money to be made so why not.
