Clamp is a successful manga, but it's arguable that it's success wasn't possible without the release of RG Veda. This summer, Dark Horse will revisit the success of RG Veda in releasing a three-volume omnibus edition that collects the entire story with full-color pages, high-quality paper and a larger print format.
RG Veda (pronounced “Rig Veda”) is based on a classic Indian saga. The lush, sprawling epic follows Yasha, once a mighty warrior king but now the lord of a slaughtered people he could not save. Yasha journeys the land as the companion and protector of the genderless Ashura, although he knows Ashura’s fate is interwoven with doom for many. Together they seek the other four of the “Six Stars,” whose prophesied gathering will at last defeat Taishakuten, the evil usurper of heaven’s throne. But all prophecies are open to interpretation . . .
RG Veda Omnibus Volume 1 (978-1-61655-988-5) is in stores August 3, 2016. Full press release below.
