For the past 100 years, marauding giants, some 60 feet tall, have roamed the earth, hunting humans and devouring them for sport. The giants are nearly invulnerable, so the humans have only two choices: Fight an unbeatable enemy, or live their lives inside a walled city.
That's the setting of Kodansha Comics' newest series, Attack on Titan. "It's kind of like The Walking Dead, only with giants," Kodansha's director of publishing services Dallas Middaugh said when he unveiled it at New York Comic-Con last October. The series was a sleeper hit in Japan, where over 5.5 million copies have been sold, and there is a live-action film in the works. Kodansha Comics is releasing the first volume on June 19, but you don't have to wait to get started—we have an 11-page preview right here so you can jump right into the story.
