VIZ Announces Black Lagoon Manga

VIZ announced today the North American debut of the BLACK LAGOON manga series. I have not read the manga yet, but based on how good the anime series is, I'm excited about this. The following is from the VIZ press release:

Creator/artist Rei Hiroe debuted his first manga series in 1993. His most notable work, BLACK LAGOON, has been published in Shogakukan's monthly magazine Sunday GX since 2002. The series is critically acclaimed for its unrelenting, fast-paced action, gritty stories and highly detailed array of weaponry and military hardware. Based on the success of the manga in Japan, BLACK LAGOON was also developed into a blockbuster animated series that has produced two seasons in Japan to date.

"BLACK LAGOON is a fast-paced, gun-slinging action adventure in the tradition of Pulp Fiction and The Transporter," says Mike Montesa, Editor, VIZ Media. "Readers will delight in the accurately depicted arsenal of weaponry and hard-boiled characters including the tough-as-nails Revy Two Hand, who is probably the sexiest femme fatale to ever pick up a Gepard anti-tank rife. With their modified PT boat, the Black Lagoon crew will deliver anything anywhere, no questions asked so long as the price is right. We invite readers to delve into this shady and exciting world of double-dealing gangsters and ruthless criminals who will use any means necessary to try and stop this rag-tag group of well-armed mercenaries from fulfilling their dangerous missions."
