Dark Horse Set to Premier Prequel to Psycho-Pass


Psycho-Pass is a fascinating anime that delves into the collective psyche of both criminal and law enforcement. The show has been largely successful, but there are likely still plenty of questions about the characters and their world. To that end, Dark Horse Comics is teaming up with Psycho-Pass creator Gen Urobuchi for Psycho-Pass: Inspector Shinya Kogami.

Written by Midori Goto with art from Natsuo Sai, this new manga series is Blade Runner meets Minority Report. With Psycho-Pass: Inspector Shinya Kogami, Urobuchi reveals how the legendary enforcer was once an ace detective! Working within the city-regulating Sybil System, inspectors must fight crime in a future where a single number measures your criminal tendencies and determines if you are useful to society.

Psycho-Pass: Inspector Shinya Kogami Volume 1 debuts on November 9, 2016. Full press release below.
