Editor Michael Gombos of the North American publisher Dark Horse Comics informed ANN that the Lone Wolf and Cub manga is the #2 bestseller in Dark Horse's new digital storefront, behind the comic adaptation of the Mass Effect game franchise. (This ranking refers to digital purchases, and does not include free preview chapters available in the Dark Horse Digital store.) Gombos revealed Lone Wolf and Cub's ranking while responding to questions about Dark Horse's Gate 7 announcement on Thursday.
Lone Wolf and Cub is Dark Horse's bestselling print title, and bestselling title overall if you include print and digital. Gombos says that the company has sold over 1.3 million copies of the series' 28 volumes.
Gombos also informed ANN that there are "more manga to come" for the site, but he could not reveal any specific titles slated for digital release.
The first four collected volumes of Kazuo Koike and Goseki Kojima's Lone Wolf and Cub are available on the Dark Horse Digital store for US$4.99 each, versus the suggested print retail price of US$12.95.
