You can find a summary of the series from MyAnimeList below.
In a post apocalyptic world of heavy metal fantasy, the only thing able to save humans from orcs, lizard men, and other monsters is something even MORE evil. Sealed within a 14-year-old boy, the chaotic wizard Dark Schneider is unleashed to fight four mighty generals and their plot to resurrect the evil god Anslasax!
While technically the series is ongoing, it has been on hiatus ever since 2010 with the release of the 27th volume.
