Seven Seas Entertainment is pleased to announce, through its Ghost Ship imprint for older readers, the license acquisition of the Mature-rated manga series Wicked Trapper: Hunter of Heroes by Wadapen. In this story, revenge is a dish best served over and over.
Echizen is a game designer being ground under the boot of his high-pressure job. His demanding workplace won’t even let him do what he’s best at: building brutal puzzles and traps for players. When he quits his job, something suddenly sucks him into a hellish dungeon in another world. His path collides with the alluring demon princess Sophilia, but before she can explain how or why she’s summoned him, they’re threatened by a party of marauding heroes–and Echizen watches in horror as the “heroes” enact a genocidal massacre on Sophilia’s demon friends. With his life on the line, Echizen uses the world’s magic to put his game developer skills to use in Sophilia’s defense. The deadly traps he creates give the heroes some brutal comeuppance, but the rush of power unlocks Echizen’s most sadistic impulses…leading him down a path he may never be able to turn back from.
Seven Seas will publish the Mature-rated manga series Wicked Trapper: Hunter of Heroes for the first time in North America in print and on digital platforms in single volume editions. Volume 1 will be released in March 2022 for $13.99 USA / $17.99 CAN as part of Seven Seas’ Ghost Ship imprint.
