Cover, More Details Released for Kurosagi Corpse Delivery Service Omnibus
Dark Horse has now revealed the cover for the upcoming first Kurosagi Corpse Delivery Service omnibus. Out in August, the $19.99, 640-page volume will reprint the first three books of the series. If you’re familiar with the series, this cover should look very familiar — it’s the cover to volume 1 with the tagline “your body is their business!” replaced by a banner that says “omnibus edition”.
Although it can be gory, I enjoy the series by Eiji Otsuka and Housui Yamazaki. It’s a very dark comedy about a mis-matched gang of five kids with vague supernatural abilities who get involved with bringing rest to the spirits of corpses. The situations are often pointed in commentary on the modern condition.
