The issue of Eiga HiHo will release in Japan on May 21, 2024. The artwork depicts the character of Furiosa with her iconic buzz cut and prosthetic left arm, while wielding a revolver on her right hand. You can take a better look at the illustration here:

Furthermore, Hara himself offered some words about the upcoming film after having watched it in a premiere ahead of its general release. You can read a translation of what Tetsuo Hara had to say about the upcoming Furiosa: A Mad Max Saga movie here:

“It is great! It was interesting from beginning to end. I have been greatly influenced by director George Miller myself. I thought it wasn’t possible, but I didn’t know there was such a way of creating (art.) And I am truly astonished by the fact that (Miller) keeps showing us new cinematic worlds. I seriously wanna be his apprentice!”

In 1983, back during the creation of the Fist of the North Star manga, the Mad Max film series was particularly influential to Hara alongside series writer Yoshiyuki “Buronson” Okamura. As a reminder, fans of the apocalyptic martial arts series are in luck, as a new Fist of the North Star anime series was announced on September 2023, to celebrate the 40th anniversary of the manga.

Furiosa: A Mad Max Saga is set to release on May 24, 2024 in North America and May 31 in Japan, where it is known as Furiosa: Mad Max.
