Kodansha Releases New Digital Sports Manga on March 7

ace-of-the-diamondDuring its panel at Emerald City Comicon in Seattle today, Kodansha Comics announced the digital publication of the holy trinity of fan-requested sports manga: Ace of the Diamond, All-Rounder Meguru, and Giant Killing. Volume 1s of all 3 titles will go on sale March 7 on all of Kodansha’s digital retail channels.

Yuji Terajima’s Ace of the Diamond, a hot-blooded, epic-length bestseller in Japan about the travails of a gifted left-handed pitcher who comes to the big city to play premier-level high-school baseball, was the basis of the hit anime series that streamed on Crunchyroll.

All-Rounder Meguru, a stirring drama about a determined young man looking to escape the bleak prospects of home by making it in the brutal world of Shooto MMA (mixed martial arts), is the latest work from acclaimed creator Hiroki Endo (Eden: It’s an Endless World!, published by Dark Horse Comics).

all-rounder-meguruMasaya Tsunamoto and Tsujitomo’s Giant Killing, about an eccentric-genius soccer coach who returns from abroad to bring success to an underdog team, is one of the all-time-favorite and long-running (still ongoing in Japan) manga about the beautiful game. It was also adapted into a hit anime series.

In addition, the panel at ECCC announced Natsumi Eguchi’s Hozuki’s Coolheadedness (adapted into the anime available from Sentai Filmworks), Kotono Kato’s Altair: A Record of Battles, and Ryosuke Tomoe’s Museum, which will see digital publication on March 21. Kodansha Comics has been steadily bringing out new, off-the-beaten-path manga series in digital format since the start of 2017.

Volume 1s of Ace of the Diamond, All-Rounder Meguru, Giant Killing, Hozuki’s Coolheadedness, Altair: A Record of Battles, and Museum will be available for sale or preorder across all Kodansha Comics digital book channels: BookWalker, comiXology, Google Play, iBooks, Kindle, Kobo, and nook.

ECCC 2017: Death Comes to Valiant for “Massacre” in Harbinger Renegade #5

This summer…a major Valiant hero will fall as the countdown to Harbinger Wars 2 begins!

As revealed today at Emerald City Comicon 2017, Valiant has announced “Massacre” – a new, four-part assault beginning this July in Harbinger Renegade #5! This summer, The Road to Harbinger Wars 2 – Valiant’s seismic 2018 crossover event – starts here as writer Rafer Roberts and artist Darick Robertson bring a newer, deadlier, and brutally efficient H.A.R.D. Corps crashing down on America’s renegade team of teenage superhumans!

Toyo Harada’s former protege – Alexander Solomon, a “psiot” with the ability to predict and analyze potential futures – has been waiting for this moment. With the Harbinger Renegades – Peter Stanchek, Faith, Kris Hathaway, and Torque – now reunited as a result of his covert manipulations, his ultimate gambit can now begin. But he’s not the only one who has been watching. Major Charlie Palmer has just re-assigned a new division of the militarized psiot hunters codenamed H.A.R.D. Corps to active duty…and they’re about to bring a torrent of blood and calamity roaring into the streets of a major American metropolis for an all-out firefight.

The Harbinger Renegades. Livewire. Alexander Solomon. Generation Zero. Toyo Harada. Secret Weapons. Imperium. None of them are safe… and, when the smoke clears, a pivotal Valiant hero will become the first sacrifice of the massive Harbinger War that is to come.

Also coming in the pages of “Massacre”…discover the true face of the antagonist that will bring Harbinger Wars 2 to bear in 2018! The first appearance of Valiant’s most formidable villain yet happens right here, only in Harbinger Renegade #5!

For more on what awaits in “Massacre”, join writer Rafer Roberts alongside Valiant Editor-in-Chief Warren Simons and Valiant CEO & Chief Creative Officer Dinesh Shamdasani this weekend for the VALIANT: THE ROAD TO HARBINGER WARS 2 panel presentation on Sunday, March 5th at 2:30 p.m. PT in room TCC301!

Image Comics’ ECCC 2017 Announcements

At Emerald City Comic Con, Image Comics kicked off the show with a slew of exciting creator-owned announcements.

Image Comics revealed the following creator-owned projects set to launch in the coming year and beyond.

DEATH OF LOVE

Fan-favorite writer Justin Jordan (SPREAD), artist Donal DeLay, colorist Felipe Sobreiro, and letterer Rachel Deering team up for an all-new, five-issue miniseries—DEATH OF LOVE.

In DEATH OF LOVE, a bitter, self-proclaimed nice guy gains the ability to see the Cupidae, who are responsible for love in the world. Who he then ends up in bloody and, hopefully, hilarious war with.

death-of-love

FAMILY TREE

Bestselling, award-winning Jeff Lemire (ROYAL CITY, DESCENDER, Sweet Tooth) and Phil Hester (Shipwreck, Green Arrow) come together for FAMILY TREE.

When an eight-year-old girl literally begins to transform into a tree, her single Mom, troubled brother, and possibly insane Grandfather embark on a bizarre and heart-wrenching odyssey across the back roads of America, desperately searching for a way to cure to her horrifying transformation before it’s too late.

But the further they get from home, and the closer the girl gets to completely losing her humanity, the more external forces threaten to tear the family apart as fanatical cults, mercenaries, and tabloid Paparazzi close in, determined to destroy the girl or use her for themselves.

A new genre-defying ongoing series, THE FAMILY TREE will combine mystery, action, and Cronenbergian body horror into an epic story about the lengths a mother will go to keep her children safe in the face of an increasingly unstable world and unspeakable horrors.

FAMILY TREE will launch this Fall 2017 from Image Comics.

FLAVOR

When she’s registered for the cooking tournament, she discovers the dark underbelly of the city—why they exploit the young chefs, where their foods coming from and why she’s got to fight against it all.

FLAVOR is on the menu for Fall 2017.

The truth lies somewhere in between. When Marcus is hired by the Russian government to take back an old KGB laboratory in the Ukraine, he comes face to face with a specter from his past who knows all Marcus’ carefully-buried truths. With everything on the line, Marcus needs to become for real the man he has always pretended to be. He also needs to punch a shitload of dudes and blow a lot of stuff up.

In advance of Emerald City Comicon 2017 (ECCC), Valiant has announced Bloodshot Salvation #1 – the FIRST ISSUE of A BLOCKBUSTER NEW ONGOING SERIES coming this September from writer Jeff Lemire and extraordinary artists Lewis LaRosa and Mico Suayan! A bloody and vengeful new era for Bloodshot begins this fall as Ray Garrison escapes his violent past to build the one thing he never thought he’d earn: a family.

Set in two timelines – the present day (with art by LaRosa) and the future (with art by Suayan) –  Jeff Lemire’s epic saga begins anew in Bloodshot Salvation #1! Plus: The introduction of a major new force in the Valiant pantheon starts here as Bloodshot’s daughter, Jessie, makes her milestone first appearance after an initial cameo in the Valiant: X-O Manowar FCBD Special, arriving in stores this Free Comic Book Day!

Now: In the arms of his beloved girlfriend Magic, Bloodshot has finally found hope for the future…in the form the couple’s unborn child. But when Magic’s estranged family – a cruel and sadistic clan of white supremacist criminals – re-emerge to lay claim to their lost daughter, Bloodshot will be pushed back to the brink of madness, mayhem, and warfare…

Soon: Eight years from today, Bloodshot’s daughter has inherited her father’s incredible abilities. Hunted by a high-tech kill squad called Omen, Jessie must hone her powers…and learn how to survive before the world is swallowed whole by the darkness that now pervades America…

ECCC 2017: Kevin J. Anderson and Steven L. Sears Debut Stalag-X

In late 2017, Vault Comics will publish an all-new original graphic novel developed in partnership by Kevin J. Anderson and Steven L. Sears, with art by Mike Ratera.

Stalag-X is a futuristic interpretation of classic POW/concentration-camp dramas such as The Bridge on the River Kwai, Stalag 17, Victory, and The Great Escape. The tone is dark, edgy, and personal. Not an epic about space wars and galactic fleets, but about people trying to survive in a lethal situation; in a concentration camp that removes the word “humanity” from the dictionary.

The backdrop is an interstellar war of genocide between Humanity and the deadly alien race known as the KRAEL. One prisoner—known only as “Joe Human”—is taken to a harsh P.O.W. camp on a distant planet. Humans will be examined, tortured and forced to endure experiments that rip into their very minds as the Krael seek to answer the question “What is ‘Human’?” A question that, in their hellish situation, the human prisoners are finding harder to answer.

But why? The Krael are already winning the war. They’ve pushed Earth back in battle after battle. They’ve never taken prisoners before—and, yet, Stalag-X exists. Why does Joe Human get the sense that the Krael are desperate and unsure of their victory? The key is here, perhaps the secret to reversing the direction of the war.
