Roaches beware: Viz reveals Terra Formars' release date


Viz's getting ready to combat Mars' roach infestation

As we're getting ready to say "farewell" to the month of June, Viz Media plans to release Terra Formars' first volume on July 15th. On top of that, Terra Formars' later volumes are getting the bi-monthly release treatment, which means that you won't have to wait too long for each new installment to come out.

While I've yet to read Terra Formars, I find the concept of humans battling mutated cockroaches to be rather interesting. Unlike your run-of-the-mill mutant bugs, Terra Formar's cockroaches are the result of mankind's attempt to use roaches to turn Mars into a planet that humans can live on. That being said, I think the cockroaches' origin adds a neat touch to Yu Sasuga and Kenichi Tachibana's work. Since Terra Formars features a group of humans that have undergone special surgery to counter the pest-related crisis, there's a good chance that we're in for a violently good time.

Anyway, if you're interested in purchasing Terra Formars Vol. 1 next month, the manga's MSRP is $12.99 U.S./ $14.99 CAN. Of course, if you know where to look, you'll be able to get your hands on Terra Formars for a discounted price.

To those of you who've read Terra Formars, is the manga worth checking out?
