    ^^ Looks great, I will have to check that out.

    Most recent scores:

    This chunky hardback finally landed in the UK and it's a beauty. Collecting together three volumes of early work, short stories and charming little autobiographical pieces about how he became a mangaka.

    Flicking through this one it's plain to see he's hit his stride with vol.3.

    I got this one free in a three for two deal, its a collection of short stories, quite varied in topics. It has a few full colour stories which is cool, adds to the variety.

    Good news ... he's an unusual mangaka, completely off his trolley.

    ... apart from all the other Manga i've bought recently (and forgot to post here), I just got these in the mail. Originally published in 1991, and translated by ComicsOne in 2001 ... the full title is 'Karasu Tengu Kabuto' (Crow Goblin Kabuto). I love the old ComicsOne paperbacks and have a few other sets, mainly featuring Ryoichi Ikegami. I would love the three book set of 'Goku Midnight Eye' but they're proving difficult to find in the UK for a fair price.

    Breakdown press looks really great. Thanks for the hint.
    I'm on volume 6 of the large Berserk collections. I've read them once before. I forgot how much humor is mixed in with everything else.
    Also just picked up 'no. 5'. Sunny is one of my favourite series ever.. I don't like no.5 as much, but it's still really great. Love these editions with the metallic print on the covers.

    Had a good day for books yesterday, including Manga. I've avoided the series 'Dorohedoro' until recently because a lot of the 20+ books have been out of print and expensive, but they started reprinting her masterwork again a while back, so its given me more confidence to collect. As per usual, the Viz collections are beautifully done.

    Speaking of Viz, the newest translation of 'Asadora' has dropped and its great. It quickly became one of my fave current Manga, and the story has been action packed in the last two volumes because the giant kaiju has finally shown itself. Urasawa has done most of the background artwork himself for this series, which is unusual for a mangaka of his stature. Its one of the best manga I've ever read, the writing and artwork are perfectly balanced, and the real life setting is rich with detail. You care about the characters, even the shady government operatives ...
