NYAF '10: Dark Horse licenses Drifters and Kekkai Sensen


Dark Horse appeared at the New York Comic-Con with some exciting announcements. Two new manga have been unveiled for release in 2011, one of which I'm very much excited about since it's by the creator of Hellsing: The series is called Drifters and by its description, sounds freakin' awesome. The other series scheduled for release is called Bloodlines Battlefront and is by the creator of Trigun.

Now how often have you been unable to find or buy a manga that you just can't wait to get?! Well Dark Horse have plans to sell their comics digitally. Unfortunately we will probably have to wait a little longer to get the licenced Japanese titles, but I trust that it is going to happen. So as of January 2011 (or a little later), you should be able to jump on the Web and buy your favourite manga title. Each Dark horse title will cost $1.49. While it may not be as cool as actually having the manga, it'd certainly be very convenient.

It has also been announced that they will be releasing a sequel to Shinjuku by Christopher Morrison and Yoshitaka Amano. The sequel to the illustrated novel will be called Shinjuku Azul.

I will likely be picking up what Hellsing I don't already have when I am able to do so digitally. Which Dark Horse comic or manga will you be looking for?
