Dorohedoro's Q Hayashida Launches New Manga Series Next Spring
posted on by Karen Ressler
This year's October issue of Shogakukan's Monthly Shonen Sunday magazine announced on Wednesday that Q Hayashida will launch a new series titled Dai Dark (Great Dark) around spring 2019. The taglines for the manga read, "Space, planets, epic adventure" and "Darkness spreading infinitely."
The same issue published the final chapter of Hayashida's Dorohedoro manga (pictured at right). The science-fiction manga first debuted in Shogakukan's Monthly Ikki magazine in 1999. When Monthly Ikki ended serialization in 2014 the manga moved to its replacement magazine Hibana, and then to Monthly Shonen Sunday when Hibana ceased publication in 2017.
Viz Media began distributing Dorohedoro digitally when it launched SigIKKI, its online English version of Shogakukan's Monthly Ikki seinen manga magazine, in 2009. The North American manga distributor then began releasing the title in printed book form in 2010.
