In Issue 2, Captain Harlock and his crew decide to take on the task of protecting Earth from impending invasion. The space pirates investigate a threat implanted on Earth that will make a Mazon takeover more likely. Will they confront the threat and eliminate it before mankind comes under siege?

Matsumoto is well known for his dramatic, interwoven space operas. The character of Captain Harlock first appeared in Matsumoto’s 1977 manga series of the same name. Captain Harlock went on to make appearances in anime and several film adaptations. The present series will depict a brand new story arc set within the same timeline as the original manga.

Issue 1 is available for pre-order now. Space Pirate Captain Harlock #2 goes on sale July 7th and will be available for preorders on April 23rd.
