Megatokyo is coming to Dark Horse


The wildly popular web comic that spawned a best selling trade paperback has found a new home! Fans and friends of the Megatokyo web comic have come to love the characters and their offbeat adventures. Whether they are entangled in a fantasy gaming scenario, saving Tokyo from devastation by rampaging zombies, or taking awkward and disaster-filled steps towards a meaningful relationship, we get to experience Tokyo through their many unique and drastically different points of view. Those new to the series may find familiar emotions and a dialogue that is eerily similar to their own. Megatokyo is a graphic story that speaks directly to the hordes of manga/anime and gaming fans in America, and it's a long overdue conversation.

Megatokyo tells the story of two Americans, Piro and Largo, who fly to Tokyo on a whim only to end up unable to afford tickets home. Rife with references to video game and anime culture both here and in Japan, it is a story that contrasts the cultures, the characters, and their own perceptions of what is around them.

Megatokyo Volume 2 by Fred Gallagher and Rodney Caston is scheduled to arrive January 2004 with a retail price of $9.95.
