Dark Horse Licenses Minetarō Mochizuki’s Isle of Dogs Manga

Dark Horse announced during its Anime Expo panel that the company has licensed Minetarō Mochizuki’s Isle of Dogs (Inugashima) manga based on Wes Anderson’s film of the same name. Dark Horse’s release of the manga will retain the format of the Japanese volume, including the hardback binding, 7.5 inch by 10.5 inch dimensions, slipcover, and end papers.

The publisher also announced that it will resume its English releases of Eiji Ohtsuka and Hosui Yamazaki’s The Kurosagi Corpse Delivery Service manga, with future releases continuing in omnibus volumes. Dark Horse has not released a new volume of the manga since the 14th volume in 2015, but it released four omnibus volumes containing three volumes of the manga in each omnibus volume. A fifth omnibus volume that will collect volumes 13, 14, and 15 (published in English for the first time) is scheduled for March 20, 2020. A sixth omnibus volume that will collect volumes 16, 17, and 18 will follow. Dark Horse plans to continue the releases further if the response to the manga is positive.
