Seven Seas entertainment announced the license of Leiji Matsumoto and Kouichi Shimahoshi’s Captain Harlock: Dimensional Voyage.
Titled Captain Harlock: Jigen Koukai in Japan is an all-new contemporary take on one of the most revered and recognizable characters in science fiction history: the space pirate Captain Harlock!
The plot: When Tadashi Daiba’s father is murdered by invaders known as the Mazon, he becomes frustrated in the face of the Earth government’s flippant attitude. Landing himself in prison, Tadashi finds himself invited aboard the battleship Arcadia, controlled by none other than the legendary Captain Harlock. Joining his crew on their journey through space, Tadashi’s future will lead him to confront not only the Mazon, but the many other forces across the universe threatening humanity’s very existence.
“Captain Harlock is both a widely respected character and a personal favorite in the office, so it was no question we wanted this newest series starring the coolest space pirate to ever rule the skies,” says Seven Seas Editor-in-Chief Adam Arnold. “Whether you’re a long time fan or completely new to the character, this latest series is amazingly drawn and exciting to read. This is one series that no reader should miss out on.”
