The series launches with issue #1 on June 9. Space Pirate Captain Harlock #2 is available for pre-order now and it scheduled to hit comic shops on July 7.

Matsumoto’s original Space Pirate Captain Harlock manga ran for five volumes from 1977 to 1979. An anime adaptation ran for 42 episodes from 1978 to 1979, with an anime film — Captain Harlock: Mystery of the Arcadia — also releasing in 1978. The Captain Harlock mythos has spawned additional television and film adaptations over the years. According to ABLAZE, its upcoming comic book series “depicts a brand-new story arc set within the same timeline as the original manga series.”
