The enormously popular seinen manga series GANTZ is scheduled to be released summer 2008 by Dark Horse Comics.

"Throughout the years, there has been one title that fans approach us about again and again, and that is GANTZ. Dark Horse President/Publisher/Founder Mike Richardson has been pursuing the book since it was released, and we're finally happy to bring GANTZ to English readers. Considered along the same lines as Ghost in the Shell and AKIRA, it is one of the greatest seinen manga ever created. GANTZ has found itself a very fitting home at the world's greatest English-language seinen publisher," explains Michael Gombos, Director of Asian Licensing at Dark Horse Comics.

When I learned the news a couple of weeks ago, I was pleasantly surprised. Primarily because I thought that it would be licensed by VIZ Media.
