Exclusive: Drifters Returns in Dark Horse Omnibus
Dark Horse has announced that they will be releasing Drifters Omnibus Volume 1. The series, by Kohta Hirano (Hellsing), inspired the hit anime. This new edition will reprint the first three volumes of the action-fantasy epic in a supersized, value-priced collection.
Dark Horse Manga originally released the series beginning in 2011. The publisher provided the following description:
Warriors and warlords from Earth’s history — “Drifters” — are transported to an alien world and employed to help the non-human races defend themselves in a worldwide civil war. Legions of monsters led by the malefic Black King threaten the annihilation of both human and non-human races. Included in the menagerie of fighters from Earth are samurai warrior Shimazu Toyohisa, Joan of Arc, and Hitler! Drifters is a howling tornado of all-out action and staggering imagination.
“Drifters is really good. It’s the best isekai that I’ve read, hands down. The characters are well-picked and form a good mix between famous commanders and heroes (Nobunaga, Hannibal, Hijikata, Jeanne d’Arc) to lesser known historical figures (Toyohisa, Kanno, Anastasia).” — MyAnimeList
The paperback Drifters Omnibus is due in bookstores January 2, 2024, and in comic shops January 3, 2024. The 672-page collection has a list price of $29.99 and can be pre-ordered now.
