Here’s your Major Spoilers summary of the important information announced during the Dark Horse manga panel.

  • If you are a fan of Hiroaki Samura’s Blade series, good news, Dark Horse will be releasing the entire series in Omnibus form. Look for the first book sometime in December.
  • I Am Hero, a zombie tale, will arrive in comic book shops in April 2016.
  • Giganto Maxia gets the omnibus treatment in February 2016
  • Danganronpa: The Annihilation – May 2016
  • RG Vega – August 2016
  • The first Oh My Goddess! Omnibus is coming sooner than you may think – the end of July!
  • Astro Boy Omnibus – September 23, 2015
  • Though it was specifically mentioned during the Blade reveal, it sounds like Dark Horse is going back to the original art for all of the Omnibus series, which means all of the art is going to be top notch.
  • We are pretty used to paying an outrageous price for omnibus editions, but Dark Horse is going to keep the price down, with many of the books selling for $19.99.

There you go, good news for Manga in America, good news for Dark Horse, and good news for comic book fans.

    Blade of the Immortal in omnibus form? Of course, right now when I’m 3 volumes short (of 31) of the series I started collecting in 1998…

      You are one of the lucky ones. Many of those original volumes are out of print and not available anymore, hence the omnibus editions.
