Book Two of the Newly Remastered Series Will Hit Stores in March 2023
LOS ANGELES 06/02/2022 — Today Skybound announced the second thrilling installment of the Lastman series from the powerhouse team of Balak, Michaël Sanlaville, and Bastien Vivès. Lastman Book Two, containing volumes 3 + 4 of the original French series, is set to launch in March 2023.
Skybound’s editions of Lastman will collect the action-packed series as a complete set in English for the first time, featuring full color pages to open each volume that will be followed by striking black and white pages. Each of the six books will feature all-new remastered translations and backmatter including additional series art.
“Picking up right where the last book left off, Lastman Book Two kickstarts the adventure by taking us into entirely unknown territory!” said Amanda LaFranco, Editor at Skybound. “Introducing all-new characters and all-new places, you really begin to get a sense of Lastman’s unique fantasy world in Book Two, and just how special this series really is. It is imagination turned up to eleven! Whatever you thought you were expecting, you’re not prepared for where things go from here.”
Against all odds, Adrian Velba has won the Valley of Kings’ tournament…but has been betrayed by his partner, Richard Aldana! Now the hunt is on, as Adrian and his mother Marianne must travel through the Rift into unknown lands to find Richard…and will soon discover that nothing is as they expected.
Skybound’s complete series remastering of the critically acclaimed fight comic kicks off in November 2022 with Lastman Book One, which contains volumes 1 + 2 of the original French series and a new foreword by Robert Kirkman.
Lastman Book Two will be available at comic book shops and digital platforms including Amazon Kindle, Apple Books, comiXology, and Google Play on Wednesday, March 15, 2023 and everywhere books are sold on Tuesday, March 21, 2023.
