Upcoming Kurosagi Corpse Delivery Service Omnibus Has New Stories
Although it’s a horror manga, which I normally can’t tolerate, I really enjoy The Kurosagi Corpse Delivery Service. The art is wonderfully detailed, the characters are wacky and interesting, and the ghost stories often have a revenge / “twist in the tail” aspect that keeps them interesting. Unfortunately, the most recent volume available in English was volume 14, which came out in the summer of 2015.
I’m glad to see we don’t need to give up hope yet. Dark Horse has announced that the coming Kurosagi Corpse Delivery Service Omnibus Book 5 will include “previously unpublished stories” — that is, new material. Since the previous Omnibus volumes have each included three books’ worth of manga, that would make this the equivalent of volumes 13-15, so I’m assuming the new stories would have been a 15th volume (which is confirmed by the Amazon listing). The Omnibus volumes have sold better than the individual in the past, as we found out a few years ago.
The Kurosagi Corpse Delivery Service Omnibus Book 5 can be preordered now from your local comic shop with Diamond code NOV19 0297. It’s $24.99 and due out March 11 next year (March 24 in bookstores). You can also order the four previous volumes, and if you haven’t read it before, you should.
