posted on by Egan Loo
North American manga publisher Kodansha Comics announced on Wednesday that it will publish Hajime Isayama's Attack on Titan manga in a Colossal Edition omnibus line. The company plans to release the first 7-by-10.5-inch (about 18-by-27-centimeter) volume with over 1,000 "premium-quality" pages on May 27 for a suggested retail price of US$59.99. This Colossal Edition volume will have the same pages as the first five volumes of the regular edition.
Kodansha Comics is already publishing the regular edition on an accelerated schedule to catch up with the Japanese release. It is also publishing three spinoff manga: Saki Nakagawa's Attack on Titan: Junior High (Shingeki! Kyojin Chūgakkō), Satoshi Shiki and Ryō Suzukaze's Attack on Titan: Before the Fall, and Hikaru Suruga and Gan Sunaaku's Attack on Titan: No Regrets. The company is publishing the Attack on Titan Guidebooks: INSIDE & OUTSIDE, while Vertical is publishing Suzukaze's Attack on Titan: Before the Fall light novel series.
