Shotaro Ishinomori’s original Kamen Rider manga is about to be available in English for the first time, and fans can finally order their copies.
Kamen Rider – The Classic Manga Collection was announced last March by Seven Seas Entertainment, and pre-orders are finally live at Barnes & Noble, Right Stuf, and Amazon. This hardcover manga collection brings together the original run of Shotaro Ishinomori’s Kamen Rider manga series in English for the first time ever.
This 50th-anniversary hardcover omnibus edition will include special bonus materials and full-color inserts. At 832 pages, this 4-volume compilation tells stories of both Kamen Rider #1 Takeshi Hongo and Kamen Rider #2 Hayato Ichimonji.
From the back cover:
“Fans the world over have long been enthralled by tales of Kamen Rider, the masked, motorcycle-riding superhero who protects the world from injustice. Kidnapped and experimented upon by the evil terrorist organization known as Shocker, Hongo Takeshi manages to escape their clutches and use his newfound strength to fight against their schemes.”
Kamen Rider – The Classic Manga Collection is available to pre-order now from Barnes & Noble, Right Stuf, and Amazon for $32.99 with discounts being offered at the latter two outlets.
