Dark Horse Is Releasing 700 Page Astro Boy Omnibus This September, With More To Follow

Calling all fans of Astro Boy! This September will bring the release of Osamu Tezuka's beloved Astro Boy in a whopping seven hundred-page omnibus! Dark Horse Comics will release Astro Boy Omnibus Volume 1, and it will feature Astro Boy's jet-powered, evil-bashing adventures. The omnibus will collect rare and out-of-print material sure to please fans of the series. Astro Boy brings back a classic era of comics and animation, featuring tales that readers both young and old will enjoy.

Astro Boy is one of those characters that I feel like I've seen everywhere, but have yet to actually read anything with him in it. So that's why it's always great when publishers put out books like this. For fans of the character, this will be a great opportunity to have all of their favorite stories in one place and for new readers, it's a one-stop introduction.

Some fun facts about Astro Boy: he is actually known by a different name in Japan, Mighty Atom. In 2007 he was named Japan's envoy for overseas safety. His stories are said to be exciting, whimsical, and touching. This will be the first in a series of releases, so if you're new to Astro Boy like me, you can look forward to more volumes in the future.

unnamedAstro Boy Omnibus Volume 1 is available for pre-order now.
