This is book number 1 in the King in Limbo Omnibus series.


From the creator of Apple Children of Aeon comes a gripping, six-volume thriller manga about trauma, healing, friendship, and what it means to be "sick" or "healthy." A must for fans of suspenseful, complex manga like Naoki Urasawa’s Monster and The Promised Neverland.

"One of the most original and exciting manga I've read in ages." -Alex de Campi (Blade Runner: Black Lotus)

Eight years have passed since the sickness known as "the Sleep" ended millions of lives. Now, after a dangerous procedure that involves diving into patients' memories has ended the pandemic, Petty Officer Adam Garfield wakes up in a hospital to find an IED has taken one of his legs. But Adam's plan to retire from U.S. Navy service and cash in his pension to goof around with his younger siblings is shattered when he receives secret word that the sleeping sickness has returned, and it's his job to coax back the mysterious man who helped cure it the first time: a man known by the codename "King."

Omnibus edition includes Parts 1 and 2.

Praise For…

"A disabled veteran is recruited to dive into dreams of patients with a sleeping disease... but neither his superiors nor his dive partner are telling him the whole truth. Part medical mystery, part conspiracy thriller, King in Limbo is one of the most original and exciting manga I've read in ages." -Alex de Campi (Blade Runner: Black Lotus, Archie Vs. Predator)

"Tanaka’s delicate linework creates a vision of a future San Francisco that feels timeless, and a partnership between two men that teeters on the edge of a deep and frightening intimacy that can only be found in dreams." -Blue Delliquanti, (Across a Field of Starlight)

"A gripping, gorgeous manga that grabs the heart of our times and twists it into knots." -Sam Humphries (Blackbird, Green Lanterns)
