SPACE PIRATE CAPTAIN HARLOCK: A Brand New Comic Based On The Hit Character Is Coming Soon

Space Pirate Captain Harlock is getting a brand new comic book series later this summer. Hit the jump for all of the details on the new release.

One of Japan's most unique pirates is returning in a brand new comic book series. Space Pirate Captain Harlock is finally back in all of his swashbuckling glory. 

Harlock initially appeared in Japan in 1977 in his very own manga series. While the book only lasted for five volumes, the series was successful enough to begin a long journey through the world of anime. This included multiple shows, OVA's films and later live-action adaptations.

The new comic series titled Space Pirate Captain Harlock is a return to form for the character, thanks to the publishers over at ABLAZE. The series is set to release with writer Leiji Matsumoto and French artist Jerome Alquié. Many variant covers are also being released from artists including Mirka Andolfo, Junggeun Yoon, Andie Tong, Philippe Briones, as well as one by the series’ main artist, Jerome Alquié.

Space Pirate Captain Harlock looks like a great opportunity to introduce a new generation of fans to the adventures of Captain Harlock. Will you be reading the book? We would love to hear your thoughts in the comments below.

impending invasion, so Captain Harlock and his crew take it on themselves. The space pirates
rush to investigate a looming threat already implanted on Earth that will make a Mazon takeover
that much more likely. Will they be able to meet this threat head on and eliminate it from the
board before humankind is under siege from all sides?


Issue #1 of Space Pirate Captain Harlock goes on sale on June 9th.
