On Tuesday, March 16th, Viz Media’s new series Dorohedoro will debut. The gritty urban sci-fi/horror saga is both written and illustrated by Q Hayashida, who is known for her bold art style and the way she seamlessly integrates alternate universes into her stories.
Here’s the synopsis of this M-rated series that’s being released under the company’s VIZ Signature imprint:
In a city so dismal it’s known only as “the Hole,” an underground group of Sorcerers have been abducting people off the streets to use as guinea pigs for atrocious “experiments” in the black arts. In a dark alley, Nikaido found Caiman, a mutant man with a reptile head and a bad case of amnesia. To undo the spell, Nikaido and Caiman hunt and kill the Sorcerers in the Hole, hoping that eventually they’ll kill the right one. But when En, the head Sorcerer, gets word of a lizard-man slaughtering his people, he sends a crew of “cleaners” into the Hole, igniting a war between two worlds.
“Dorohedoro blends bloody mutant action with the classic horror elements — zombies, demons, and ghosts — and an intricate post-apocalyptic urban setting,” says Leyla Aker, Editorial Manager, VIZ Media. “At the same time the characters are likable, the dialogue’s funny, and I think readers will be surprised by its charm.”
