It’s always an exciting time for comic book fans when two large publishing companies join forces to bring something unique and different to a cluttered genre. Enter Dark Horse and Japan based Madhouse Publishing (“TRIGUN”, “PAPRIKA”, “NINJA SCROLL” )who are combining their efforts with the sci-fi horror title “DEVIL” being released this February. Read on for the details.
The press release reads:
“Manga artist Torajiro Kishi (Maka-Maka) and blockbuster anime studio Madhouse (Trigun, Paprika, Ninja Scroll) love comics. So much so that they’ve decided to publish an original, Western-style comic exclusively with Dark Horse! Enter Devil, a thrilling, sci-fi take on the vampire genre.
A virus is raging across the planet, turning people into bloodsucking superhumans referred to as “Devils.” Most victims die within days, sometimes months, but there’s a new strain, a new class of Devil that threatens to overtake mankind with power and bloodthirst. This new class of Devils derive from an experiment to clone a virus victim, and it looks like science has created a true monster this time. Can Takimoto and the Devil Investigation Section of the Tokyo police force stop this societal scourge? We’ll just have to see.
* Exclusive comic specifically for the American audience and only available from Dark Horse!”
At first glance the title sounds a lot like “DAYBREAKERS”, which isn’t at all a bad thing. As a fan of Madhouse’s other work with “TRIGUN” I have to say that this is a title that a lot of you should keep your eyes on. Dark Horse has always brought us some very interesting an mature original material in the past, and “DEVIL” looks to carry on that tradition when it drops February 3rd.
