Seven Seas Entertainment is proud to announce the license acquisition of Lupin III (Lupin the 3rd): Greatest Heists – The Classic Manga Collection by Monkey Punch, a hardcover compilation of some of the finest Lupin III manga ever published.
Master thief Arsène Lupin III, the charming grandson of Arsène Lupin, has been stealing treasures and hearts since Monkey Punch’s original manga series in the 1960s. The capers and adventures of Lupin III—along with his trusted sidekicks and hot-in-pursuit rivals—have turned him into one of the most beloved manga characters of all time. Lupin III’s exploits have been immortalized through decades of multimedia incarnations, including Hayao Miyazaki’s animated film directorial debut, The Castle of Cagliostro, and the stunning 2019 CG animated film Lupin III: The First, newly available in English from GKids.
This special collection of Monkey Punch’s original manga, published in Japan as a tribute to his legacy after his passing in 2019, includes some of the greatest Lupin III manga tales pulled from years of this influential work. Seven Seas will be releasing this one-of-a-kind tome as a beautiful large-trim hardcover for Lupin III’s English-speaking fans.
Seven Seas will publish Lupin III (Lupin the 3rd): Greatest Heists – The Classic Manga Collection for the first time in North America in print and on digital platforms in a single large-trim hardcover. The book will be released in November 2021 for $23.99 USA / $30.99 CAN.
