In DR. STONE, one fateful day all of humanity is suddenly turned to stone.

The situation looks grim—until he runs into his science-loving friend Senku! Together they plan to restart civilization with the power of science!

In RADIANT, evil creatures called Nemeses fall from the skies and the only ones who can fight them are Wizards—infected ones who survived a Nemesis's corruption. Seth, one of these survivors, vows not only to fight the Nemeses, but to find their mythical nest, Radiant, and destroy it!

 “RADIANT delivers a rich new world and loveable characters to fans craving a fresh take on shonen action and adventure,” says Marlene First, Editor. “We’re excited to unveil the first volume of RADIANT to our readers this fall and get a head start before the anime begins airing!”
