Titan Manga, a new imprint from Titan Comics, has announced a new partnership with Stonebot to publish Kamen Rider Kuuga and Atom: The Beginning manga series. The partnership will also include a brand-new originated Kamen Rider Zero-One comic series.

The partnership kicks-off on 11th October 2022 with the releases of ATOM: The Beginning Volume 1 – an original manga series based on the God of Manga Osamu Tezuka’s world-famous series Astro Boy, which has spawned multiple anime adaptations, video games, and more!

ATOM: The Beginning is a sci-fi manga about the turbulent lives of two robotics engineering students and their latest revolutionary project: the unassuming yet insanely strong A106, or “Six.”

Kamen Rider Kuuga goes beyond the bounds of a normal adaptation and redefines its hero for modern audiences, expanding its universe and connecting it to other incarnations of the bug-eyed hero in a completely approachable way for new readers who haven’t encountered a Kamen Rider story before. Vol. 1 is due to hit stores November 8, 2022.

“We are so excited to be working with Stonebot,” said Titan Publishing Director, John Dziewiatkowski. “We have a successful history with manga publishing, but this new partnership will bring the imprint to new levels.

Titan will also publish a new, originated comic series based on the Tokusatsu TV series Karmen Rider Zero-One (currently on Shout! Factory in the US). Written by Brandon Easton (Transformers), this series is due to launch in Autumn/Winter 2022.

“This partnership not only shares an ambitious commercial vision, but also a work philosophy with the talented Titan team. More to come!” said Diego Barassi, Managing Director, Stonebot.

Kamen Rider Kuuga and ATOM: The Beginning are the latest announcements from Titan Manga (new imprint from Titan Comics) which also recently revealed a new “directors cut” edition of Afro Samurai – launching in July 2022.

This follows recent Titan Manga smash-hits Sherlock Holmes (the adaptation of the hit BBC show) and Eldo Yoshimizu’s Ryuko Vol. 1 & Vol. 2, Gamma Draconis and Hen Kai Pan.

It’s been a while since there’s been a UK-published Kamen Rider comic here – not since 1997, in fact, published by Marvel. Richard Sheaf has a guide to the title here on his Boys Adventure Comic blog
