Fans of longtime manga cult favorites Parasyte and COPPELION are going to see digital editions of these series, at last, in time for the holidays.

It's just the beginning, as digital bookstores will see a late-year surge of darker-edged manga from Kodansha Comics, starting Tuesday, December 1. Outlets will include our regular digital retail partners at comiXology, iBooks, Kindle, Kobo, and nook.

The Digital Edition of Volume 1 of the cult alien-invasion manga Parasyte—whose disturbing anime adaptation can currently be seen on Adult Swim—will go on sale December 1. New volumes will be made available weekly thereafter.
