Trigun Maximum

Mar 11th 2004
Dark Horse and Digital Manga present the explosive Trigun sequel, Trigun Maximum!


The hottest manga on the market enters brand new storytelling territory! As an anime series, Trigun gained a multitude of fans across the otaku landscape, before gaining a burgeoning mainstream manga audience. Now, Trigun Maximum, coming May 2004 from Dark Horse and Digital Manga, brings readers more explosive action and adventure!

The bounty on Vash's head has been lifted since he was declared a “natural disaster” by the two insurance ladies, Millie and Meryl, but that's not the end of his troubles. An unmatched gunman, Vash has a mystery locked in his scarred body and a dark past he can't completely remember. Plus, he's also the target of a gang of assassins devoted to another enigmatic character named Knives. Knives knows about Vash's mysterious power, and at the end of Trigun volume two used it to turn Vash's arm into a giant gun that was used to blast a crater into a moon above the planet! Vash has since disappeared from society and has not been seen for a few years.

With Vash's long absence, legends begin to spring up all over about him and there are several Vash imposters showing up trying to lay claim to his legend. But now legend is about to meet reality when the traveling priest known as Wolfwood gets stranded in a seedy bar. The bartender tells him he can't leave because Vash is holding the town hostage. He wonders, can it be the real Vash? Wolfwood is intent on finding out, and events explode that lead him to believe he may have found the real Vash!

“I was overwhelmed by the positive response the first two Trigun volumes received,” manga editor Tim Ervin-Gore enthused. “And I am eager to see where Trigun Maximum takes us as the story grows in intensity and new villains come into play. Trigun fans are in for a real treat!”

Trigun Maximum, featuring story and art by Yasuhiro Nightow, arrives on sale May 19 with a retail price of $9.95. Trigun Maximum will feature translated and overlaid sound effects.
