Seven Seas Hunts Zombies with License of TOKYO UNDEAD Manga
Seven Seas Entertainment is pleased to announce their acquisition of Tsukasa Saimura's zombie survival series, Tokyo Undead.
After a man-made pathogen known as the K virus is accidentally released from Fieldwar Labs in the heart of Tokyo, the city is overrun by flesh-eating zombies. In the hopes of saving the last-remaining survivors of this apocalypse, an organization known as Madara sends out its rookie member in a last-ditch effort to find a cure. Young Itachi must survive the zombie-ravaged streets of Tokyo while searching for the missing key that’s integral to Japan’s survival!
"Tokyo Undead is a great self-contained horror story," said Seven Seas publisher Jason DeAngelis. "While we continue to publish Tsukasa Saimura's ongoing Hour of the Zombie series, we knew we had to get this series, which is his debut zombie work. It's a tense story filled with twists about trying to survive a zombie apocalypse in one of the world's most densely populated cities. No simple task!"
Seven Seas will present Tokyo Undead for the first time in print in North America as one complete omnibus collection. The 400+ page book will contain both of the original two volumes, and multiple color inserts. Tokyo Undead will be released on October 4, 2016 for $18.99 USA / $21.99 CAN.
