Full Story
GEN Manga Issue 13

Details as follows:

We are excited to announce the official release of GEN 13. Along with continuing installments of our titles ANDROID ANGELS, ONE IS ENOUGH, STONES OF POWER, ANOMAL, and ALIVE, this issue introduces the following new title:


In a post-apocalyptic future, after nuclear war has destroyed much of the world, Japan has once again closed its borders to the outside world. Again living in isolation, the Japanese people have begun to develop strange mutations. These mutations became commonly known as moryo, a name once given to the grotesque goblins of ancient Japan. These moryo at first were harmless, but they became worse, eventually developing into man-eating beasts and other monstrous forms. Hunters known as exterminators roam the land ridding humanity of these foul mutants. This is the story of one of these killers, a man known only as Psycho.

We've also got some news about GEN Manga's new publishing deal which means they'll be in Portuguese too!

Press release as follows:
