Dark Horse will make publishing history with the release of the first volume of this critically acclaimed manhwa series in a new weekly online publishing program.
Shaman Warrior is a dramatic fantasy series with a kinetic style that will appeal to fans of Blade of the Immortal and Vagabond! From the desert wastelands emerge two mysterious warriors, master wizard Yarong and his faithful servant Batu. On a grave mission from their king, they have yet to realize the whirlwind of political movements and secret plots which will soon engulf them and change their lives forever. When Yarong is mortally injured, Batu must fulfill a secret promise to leave Yarong’s side and protect his master’s child. As Batu seeks to find and hide the infant, Yarong reveals another secret to those who have tracked him down to finish him off–the deadly, hidden power of a shaman warrior!
The first volume of this top-selling series will be released weekly, exclusively on Dark Horse’s website, beginning on February 22nd.
“We’re happy that Haksan Publishing has allowed us to do something spectacular. It should be noted that nothing like this has ever happened in the U.S., much less Korea,” commented Dark Horse Director of Asian Licensing, Michael Gombos. “We’re pleased to be a part of such a tremendous event, and happy to share one of Korea’s most renowned series with the English-speaking world.”
“We are looking forward to some positive results in promotion of the ongoing series,” said Ms. Yina Kwon from the Korean-based Haksan Publishing.
