BERSERK TP #1

BLACK SWORDSMAN

(W) Kentaro Miura (A) Kentaro Miura (CA) Kentaro Miura

His NAme is Guts, the Black Swordsman, a feared warrior spoken of only in whispers. Bearer of a gigantic sword, an iron hand, and the scars of countless battles and tortures, his flesh is also indelibly marked with The Brand, an unholy symbol that draws the forces of darkness to him and dooms him as their sacrifice. But Guts won't take his fate lying down; he'll cut a crimson swath of car NAge through the ranks of the damned -- and anyone else foolish enough to oppose him! Accompanied by Puck the Elf, more an annoyance than a companion, Guts relentlessly follows a dark, bloodstained path that leads only to death...or vengeance. Created by Kenturo Miura, Berserk is manga mayhem to the extreme -- violent, horrifying, and mercilessly funny -- and the wellspring for the inter NAtio NAlly popular anime series. Not for the squeamish or the easily offended, Berserk asks for no quarter -- and offers none! * Dark Horse brings an English translation of Berserk to the US for the very first time! * The Dark Horse version of Berserk will be published in the origi NAl Japanese format! * One of the most eagerly anticipated manga properties in recent years, Berserk was origi NAlly published in Japan and has been serialized in Young Animal Magazine since the early 1990's. * Berserk will be shipped shrink-wrapped with a content advisory printed on the back cover.

(NEW PTG)

(W) Kentaro Miura (A) Kentaro Miura (CA) Kentaro Miura

He is Guts, the Black Swordsman, a warrior of legendary prowess-relentless, fearless, merciless. As cold and brutal as the iron of the massive sword he wields. Bent on revenge against the unholy forces that have branded him for sacrifice, but especially on Griffith, one of the demon lords of the Godhand. But Griffith was once a man, the leader of the Hawks, a renowned cadre of elite fighters with a young Guts as its fiercest champion. Though forged in a crucible of cruelty and violence, nothing could prepare Guts for a confrontation with Nosferatu Zodd, a superhuman beast who slaughters Guts' comrades as easily as a scythe cuts wheat. Even Guts and Griffith are no match for the abomi NAtion's power ... but something Griffith wears around his neck may well be! •  One of the most eagerly anticipated manga properties in recent years, Berserk was origi NAlly published in Japan and has been serialized in Young Animal Magazine since the early 1990s. •  The Berserk manga has been adapted into a best-selling anime series available from Media Blasters! •  NOTE: Each volume of Berserk is shipped shrink-wrapped and carries a cover content advisory.

BERSERK TP #6

(W) Kentaro Miura (A) Kentaro Miura (CA) Kentaro Miura

Back in the day, Guts the Black Swordsman was a top slayer for The Band of the Hawk, an elite merce NAry unit led by Griffith, whose calm demeanor and callow beauty belied his fighting prowess and steel will. While in a king's employ, the attraction between the king's daughter and Griffith and the growing favor of the king towards the Hawk leader raises the hackles of the king's jealous brother, who plots to have Griffith summarily assassi NAted. But if the plot fails, the king's brother will likely have to deal with Guts and his titanic broadsword, and the results of such confrontations are rarely pretty... or easy to clean up.

(W) Kentaro Miura (A) Kentaro Miura (CA) Kentaro Miura

Two feudal kingdoms, Midland and Chuder, battle for supremacy in what will become the fi NAl clash in a century-long struggle. Spearheading the Midland forces is the Band of the Hawk, a legendary cadre of elite merce NAries led by the charismatic Griffith and with the fearless Guts as its berserker champion. The Hawks' ferocity, courage, and fearsome skills-not to mention Guts' enormous broadsword-are just what Midland needs to turn the bloody tide, but during the fray, Guts and Griffith's most trusted lieute NAnt, Casca, fall together from a cliff into a raging river. Both miraculously survive-barely-and Guts tends to Casca's wounds as she tells of having her life saved by Griffith, her induction into the Band of the Hawk, and her deep feelings toward Griffith. And she even seems to fi NAlly be warming up to the grim Guts. But this greeting-card moment won't last long, for Chuder warriors are on the prowl, and the only greetings they carry are on the points of their spears!
