Viz licenses Naoki Urasawa's Master Keaton manga

0

Woah!

Here's an unexpected announcement: Viz Media has licensed Naoki Urasawa's (of Monster, Pluto, and 20th Century Boys fame) Master Keaton manga series. The classic series ran from 1988 to 1994, inspired a TV anime, and a host of OVAs. It was so popular that two years ago Urasawa returned to the property and began Master Keaton Remaster, a sequel series set 20 years after the original. Though, let's not get ahead of ourselves here -- Viz only licensed the original.

But still! This is great news. I'm a huge fan of Urasawa's work and can't wait pick it up. It'll start in December this year and run 12 volumes, each containing 18 full-color pages. Perhaps this will do well enough to convince publishers to bring over more of his works... right? Right?!

Please?!
