New York, NY – GEN Manga Entertainment, Inc. announces the release of Alive. (Alive, 284 pages, black and white, US 2.99) will be available April 2013.

Alive: Seemingly mundane events twist with an unusual presence of the unreal as the psyche of ordinary people is explored. Characters struggle to connect with one another but never quite succeed. They are essentially alone. A world that is dark and disturbing—suicide is contemplated and feelings of guilt, inadequacy, and suppressed sexuality surface as identity itself becomes a terribly fragile thing.

Stone Collector: Pieces of curse fall from the sky as if to mock the cruelty and evil of humanity. These stones create wretched beasts and the blood of these beasts turn human flesh into the undead. There is only one thing that can destroy these hellish fiends—Jade Stone. This is the story of a Stone Collector. One who wields Jade forged blades. A man whose family was murdered by these evil abominations and he has now vowed to rid the world of the foul presence. —Author: Kevin Han —Artist: Zom-J
