Well, it looks the new Titan Manga imprint of Titan Comics is kicking things off with a partnership to publish a pair of popular manga series. How much more popular can you get than the Astro Boy almost-prequel and Kamen Rider?
The Beginning of a Beautiful Partnership?
Titan Manga and Stonebot are proud to announce a brand new partnership for both publishing companies. To kick off that partnership, they’re announcing that they will jointly publish a pair of new manga series. The 2 new manga series will be:
Atom: The Beginning
Atom: The Beginning is a sci-fi manga series based on the Astro Boy series by Osamu Tezuka. In fact, the manga starts off as a direct prequel to Astro Boy, and even features the creators of Astro in their youth as the main characters. Things quickly start going off-rails from there though, resulting in this manga being in its own separate continuity.
Titan Manga and Stonebot even have a trio of preview pages for Atom: The Beginning for us today. Albeit, in truly random order. Check them out below:
Atom: The Beginning Vol. 1 will go on sale on October 11, 2022; with Vol. 2 going on sale on December 13, 2022. You can preorder Vol. 1 and Vol. 2 on Amazon. If you live in the UK or Europe though, then you can preorder Vol. 1 and Vol. 2 on Forbidden Planet.
Kamen Rider Kuuga
Kamen Rider Kuuga is basically a modernized Kamen Rider that’s marketed toward the modern audience, especially for those who’ve never read or ever heard of Kamen Rider before. Neither Titan Manga nor Stonebot mentions any specifics about this. Only that Kamen Rider Kuuga “marks the return of a classic manga character adapted for the 21st century that’s sure to surprise both new and veteran fans alike”.
Like with Atom: The Beginning though, Titan Manga and Stonebot have a trio of completely random preview pages from Kamen Rider Kuuga for us today. Check them out below:
Kamen Rider Kuuga Vol. 1 will go on sale on November 8, 2022; with Vol. 2 going on sale on January 10, 2023. You can preorder Vol. 1 and Vol. 2 on Amazon. Again, if you live in the UK or Europe though, then you can preorder Vol. 1 and Vol. 2 on Forbidden Planet.
