ABOUT THE MANGA:
CAPTAIN COMMANDO: In a dark and dirty world, there will come… a hero! Captain Commando is an over-the-top manga take on the rich history of super-powered heroes, both the U.S. capes-and-tights set and Japan’s tokusatsu sentai heroes! Created by Kotomi Tobashi and Kenkou Tabuchi, the manga mixes amazing action sequences and a detailed plot with humour and even romance!
Join Captain Commando and his bizarre squad (including Ninja Commando, Mummy Commando, and Baby Commando) as they foil an international terrorism plot! Thrill to the hard-boiled action!
The hero of the Captain Commando, Marvel vs. Capcom, and Marvel vs. Capcom 2 video games is sure make a huge impression on North American manga readers!
SENGOKU BASARA: SAMURAI LEGENDS: It is the most-famous time in Japan’s history—the warring states period—and it’s never been like this! Samurai lords and fierce rivals Sanata Yukimura and Date Masamune form an uneasy alliance in order to defeat the dark lord, Oda Nobunga! The two will need to battle other samurai and henchmen, and use a startling array of techniques and powers to win the day!
Based on the video game Sengoku Basara 2 (but it also stands completely on its own), this manga features a huge array of attractive, powerful heroes doing battle for the fate and future of all Japan!
Written and illustrated by Yak Haibara, Sengoku Basara: Samurai Legends is sure to appeal to action, adventure, and history fans, and we know that the legions of Sengoku Basara fans have been anxiously awaiting this manga’s arrival!
