An English version of the official Kirby manga will be releasing under the title Kirby Manga Mania.

VIZ Media is releasing an English translation of Corocoro’s Kirby of the Stars: The Story of Dedede Who Lives in Pupupu in English for the first time. The manga is a series of comics featuring Kirby, King Dedede, and other friends. The manga was serialized in Corocoro Comics.
