The long-running manga Beserk by Kentaro Miura has influenced the Dark Souls games, among other things. Now it’s getting the Deluxe treatment from Dark Horse.
From the Press Release:
Kentaro Miura’s Berserk has outraged, horrified, and delighted readers since 1989, and now the champion of adult fantasy manga is presented in a handsome embossed hardcover edition amassing the first three Berserk volumes in Kentaro Miura’s preferred 7” x 10” format, with further volumes to come to present the entire series in deluxe matching bookshelf collections.
One of the most popular and long-running adult manga series ever published, Berserk has inspired hit anime TV series and feature films, video games, a trading card game, and a wide variety of toys and related products, and is the top selling series in Dark Horse history, with nearly two million copies sold and still going strong.
In addition to the Berserk Deluxe Editions, Dark Horse Manga will publish the Berserk Official Guidebook on September 19, 2018 and on April 3, 2019 the first ever Berserk light novel, Berserk: The Flame Dragon Knight, which traces the rise of the warrior Grunbeld from humble beginnings to the all-powerful Apostle who will one day face Guts in mortal combat!
Berserk Deluxe Edition Volume 1 HC goes on sale February 27, 2019 and is available for pre-order at Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and your local comic shop.
