Shueisha announced the theme illustration for the character novel category of the latest Jump Novel Prize for New Writers today. The participants for the category must create an original story based on the illustration drawn by Yasuhiro Nightow (Trigun). Hit the jump for more details.
You might remember the well regarded mafia revenge anime 2003 anime Gungrave, and you might remember that it was based on a less well received Red Entertainment/Sega game with designs from Trigun's Yasuhiro Nightow. The PlayStation 2 classic sequel Overdose is now back with a digital release from Xseed. More after the jump.
Publisher Dark Horse has sent out their solicitations for October comics and November graphic novels. Among the upcoming manga titles is the first omnibus collection Trigun Maximum. See the full plans after the jump.
Recently, we debuted the cover for the second volume of Avatar: The Last Airbender - The Promise, due to be released May 30th. Now we have the full Dark Horse schedule for the month. New manga includes the second volume of Trigun creator Yasuhiro Nightow's Blood Blockade Battlefront, an omnibus of Hajime Ueda's FLCL and more. Check it out after the jump.
Yasuhiro Nightow has made quite a few contributions to the manga world and beyond, not the least of which was giving birth to that sixty-billion double-dollar rascal, Vash the Stampede. Both Trigun and the Nightow-designed Playstation 2 shooter Gungrave landed themselves in Dark Horse Comics' lineup in the past, and that's precisely where his latest mini-series, Bloodline Battlefront, is headed.
