VIZ Media announced they will publish Kirby Manga Mania from the author Hirokazu Kikawa on June 8, 2021, for $9.99.
Kirby Manga Mania takes place in Dream Land, where a host of recognizable characters, including Dark Matter, Jukid, Gooey, Chef Kawasaki, and the antagonist King Dedede get stuck in a haunted hotel. Kirby is tasked with saving King Dedede from a toy transformation, or he could get a glimpse of Dream Land in the 22nd century.
The manga is a collection of short stories that were released from 1995 through 2006. While the series was supposed to come west in 2011, it mysteriously was removed and reappeared with a 2021 release date.
“This is my first best-of collection. I selected the funniest stories out of the Kirby manga series’ 25-volume run. I also drew the series’ first brand-new chapter in 11 years, as well as some bonus comics. I hope you’ll enjoy those too.” said Hikawa-san.
We’ll be sure to keep you updated on future publications from VIZ Media.
