posted on by Egan Loo
North American publisher Seven Seas Entertainment announced on Tuesday that it acquired the rights to Katsuhisa Kigitsu's dark parody manga series Franken Fran. The company will release the series in two-in-one omnibus collections starting in February 16, 2016. Each of the four omnibus volumes with color inserts will list for US$19.99.
Seven Seas describes the story:
Somewhere, out in the sticks of rural Japan, there is a mysterious manor that is home to the greatest surgeon who ever lived. But when the surgeon goes missing, his reanimated daughter, Fran, takes up the family profession, and despite her Frankenstein-like ways, cares deeply for her patients and holds steadfast to the Hippocratic Oath. Fran's creed? “All lives must be saved, no matter the cost!”
Readers will join Fran, her twisted sister Veronica, and the rest of her monstrous entourage in a gruesomely hilarious tale that would put Mary Shelley to shame! Because for Franken Fran, the ends always justify the means, no matter what ungodly creations emerge from her lab.
