Seven Seas Entertainment announced on Wednesday that it will release a hardcover omnibus volume of Go Nagai's Cutie Honey manga under the title Cutie Honey: The Classic Collection. The large-trim book is slated for July 3, 2018.
The classic 1973 manga follows Cutie Honey, an android created by Professor Kisaragi. When he is murdered by an organization seeking the device within her, she seeks revenge. The manga has not previously been released in North America.

In addition to Cutie Honey, Nagai is known for creating classic manga such as Devilman, Getter Robo, and Mazinger Z, among other titles.
