Dark Horse Comics is bringing another manga series to print as they’ve solicited for the first volume of Captain Momo’s Secret Base. The first volume is set for a May 15th, 2024 release priced at $14.99 with it listed as coming in at 140 pages.
The property comes from writer/artist Kenji Tsuruta which began serialization in 2017 in Rakuen le Paradis for Hakusensha. Known originally as Momo Kanchou no Himitsu Kichi, it has one volume out in Japan so far and is listed as ongoing
Plot Concept: Moshi-Moshi Momo works from home like many people–in a den crowded with books and papers, shared with a cat that’s got its own agenda.
Except Momo truly does possess office space–because she lives inside a starship, and relativity means Zoom meetings need half an hour just to ask a question!
In the year 3019 AD, humanity has gotten even more work casual: most of the time, Momo doesn’t bother to wear her captain’s uniform–or anything at all–onboard the cargo vessel Blue Chateau, as she struggles against interstellar tedium, company directives, low battery strength, and her ever-underfoot cat John. But fear not, for equipped with plenty of reading material and a crate of peach liqueur, in the long haul past Proxima Centauri space slacker Captain Momo will at last prove Newton correct–a body at rest will remain at rest!
