Dark Horse Delivers Lone Wolves, Vocaloids and a Terada Artbook at Sakura Con

Dark Horse Deliveres Lone Wolves, Vocaloids and a Terada Artbook at Sakura Con

Dark Horse had some news at the recently passed Sakura-Con, appealing to fans of the old, the new and the just outright shiny. Of the news, however, they had just the one new title announcement:

Hatsune Miku: Unofficial Hatsune Mix – KEI

This manga is by the original designer for Hatsune Miku, so you’re getting your vocaloid fix straight from the source. For those unfamiliar with Hatsune Miku, I recommend Wikipedia for a quick overview of the phenomena and character. Currently this series is three volumes in Japan and Dark Horse will include several full colour illustrations. My experience of Hatsune Miku stops at knowing who she is and the technology that birthed her, so I’m actually a little curious to see how a story starring her goes in manga format.

Dark Horse also re-announced their plans for the sequel series to Lone Wolf and Club, by Hideki Mori & Kazuo Koike. They had already stated they had the license for this title back in 2006, but apparently it’s had some significant delays since then. The company announced in October that they’ll be re-releasing the original Lone Wolf and Club as omnibus editions so the timing of this sequel update fits well.

And last up for new stuff, Dark Horse also revealed they’ll be releasing a new art book – The Art of Katsuya Terada. As the name suggests, this collection of art is by Katsuya Terada, whose works include being character design for Blood: The Last Vampire and his comic series, The Monkey King, which Dark Horse is currently publishing.
