April Dark Horse Manga Releases

Gantz, Oh! My Goddess and the Long Awaited Continuation of Katsuya Terada's Monkey King!

Dark Horse released the first volume of Blood: the Last Vampire character designer Katsuya Terada's very metal take on the Journey to the West, The Monkey King, in September 2005. It's been a very long wait, but volume 2 has finally been scheduled, as have new entries of Gantz and Oh! My Goddess.

A spectacle without precedent unfolds in the streets of Osaka, leaving a path of complete and utter destruction as the Osaka Gantz team’s battle with the aliens in Dotombori continues to escalate. Beset by a growing number of ghouls, each more deadly than the last, even the battle-hardened Gantz warriors find their numbers dwindling. In the midst of the mayhem, Kato must choose between saving innocent bystanders or himself. Can Kato’s sense of justice melt the frozen hearts of the Osaka team?

After a seven-year hiatus, Katsuya Terada, one of Japan's most sought-after commercial illustrators, returns to his adaptation of this saga with The Monkey King Volume 2. A rare example of a manga painted entirely in full color, The Monkey King is the epic of Goku, a savage ape once imprisoned by Lord Buddha himself, but now freed by the monk Sanzo to serve as his bodyguard on a journey to the West . . . across a wasteland filled with weird, violent, and sexy demons!

Thrym—in Norse legend, the frost giant who once stole Thor's hammer! But in Oh My Goddess!, Thrym is no legend, but a very real buffed-out demonness who stands guard over the next chamber of Hell, aiming to stop Keiichi and the goddesses in their journey to free Hild. To defeat this massive door warden, spells won't be enough—and Belldandy must engage in something shocking for her . . . hand-to-hand combat! Each volume of Oh My Goddess! contains fan art, letters, and commentary from the creator.
