Seven Seas Entertainment has mad another license acquisition with the pickup of the manga series Monster Guild: The Dark Lord’s (No-Good) Comeback!. The series comes from Tourou which began in 2019 as serialized in Comic Bunch Web. It’s an ongoing series that has two volumes out in Japan so far.
Seven Seas will publish the manga series for the first time in North America in print and on digital platforms in single volume editions. The first volume will be released in September 2021 for $12.99 USA / $16.99 CAN.
Plot Concept: It’s hard to defeat a mighty hero when he keeps coming back to life–in fact, it’s impossible. The Dark Lord, stuck in a loop of battling a good guy who won’t stay dead, finally loses the fight and meets his own end…or so it would seem. The Dark Lord saved himself by putting his soul into an empty vessel, and now he’s about to stage his own comeback. He may be weak now, but along with his newly formed fellowship of misfits–a slime, an orc, an ifrit, and a dark elf–he’s convinced he can rebuild his evil empire, one bumbling step at a time.
