Attack on Titan, the manga and anime phenomenon about the remaining band of humanity up against the giant people-eating Titans, has made its way to the West both as translated manga and on TV. Western creators have had a go at these giants such as when they crossed over with Marvel's popular characters, and when Tony Moore illustrated the jacket for a special edition of volume 16 of the manga. Next year though the crossover between western creators and Attack on Titan will be on a larger scale.

During The Biggest Attack on Titan Manga Announcement Everpanel at New York Comic Con, publisher Kodansha announced the Attack on Titan Anthology. The book will be the same dimensions as a USA comic book (larger format than a manga tankōbon) with 250 pages and in full color. Each story will run 5-25 pages and pin-ups will be included.

The creators announced were:

  • Brenden Fletcher
  • Tomer & Asaf Hanuka
  • Faith Erin Hicks
  • Kate Leth & Jeremy Lambert
  • Michael Avon Oeming
  • Afua Richardson
  • Paolo Rivera
  • Damion Scott
  • Gail Simone
  • Scott Snyder
  • Cameron Stewart
  • Babs Tarr
  • Genevieve Valentine
  • Kevin Wada
  • Ronald Wimberly

Ben Applegate who put together the project, gave pretty free-reign to the creators and described what he has seen of the works:

"So far, we've got a few serious stories in the Titan continuity, a few stories involving Titans in new settings, and a few completely off-the-wall comedy pieces." The creators will be allowed to invent new characters as well"


No price or exact street date was announced. The book should arrive in the Fall of 2016.
