We've been sent a press release from the good folks at Titan Books. They've aquired the rights for the Dark Horse version of Eden. It's due to hit the bookshelves on 27th April 2007.
Press release as follows:
FAR FROM PARADISE
Titan's Post Apocalyptic Epic Begins
"[Endo] conjures a post-apocalyptic aura of near palpable mystery."
"Soul-searching and philosophical, Eden is a story that explores the instinct to survive...ultimately this story may be about the power of love."
- Active Anime
In the tradition of cyberpunk classic Akira comes Eden, a story about a boy’s survival in a post-apocalyptic world where problems are solved with bullets, love is bought, and his only companion is a cybernetic killing-machine called Cherubim!
The first volume in this new manga series from Titan Books, Eden: It’s An Endless World vol. 1 [Titan Books, 27 April 2007, £6.99] finds the planet devastated by the pandemic Closure virus, leaving what remains of a crumbling society in the hands of a sinister paramilitary group known as the Propater. When young Elijah Ballard is captured by a group of mercenaries while searching for his long-lost mother, he realises his adventures have only just begun...
Continuing his journey in Eden: It's An Endless World vol. 2 [Titan Books, 27 April 2007, £6.99], Elijah’s quest to find his mother leads to a violent confrontation, and as tensions between the freedom fighters begin to reach breaking point, those who seek them are preparing to mount an all-out assault on their hiding place in Cuzco City...
Philosophical, heartbreaking, action-packed and beautifully illustrated, the highly-acclaimed Eden truly is paradise on earth. Published by Titan in Japanese right-to-left reading format, it weaves a powerful, bittersweet tale for mature readers.
As well as creating the highly successful Eden, which featured in Japanese manga anthology Afternoon, Hiroki Endo has also published the two-volume short manga collection Tanpenshu.
