A surprise hit in Japan became a global colossus, as the blockbuster anime premiered and brought legions of fans to this epic about humanity's struggle against monsters waiting outside the three Walls, and inside their own hearts.

To celebrate, creator Hajime Isayama has authorized the colorization of twelve manga chapters, specially selected by himself, loyal fans, and other staff. This premium hardcover includes the first half of his unique project, as well as the original version of Attack on Titan Episode 1, which was vastly different from what was eventually published twelve years ago.
