Akira 35th Anniversary Manga Box Set

Postby usamimi » Thu Feb 23, 2017 5:52 pm

Looks like pre-orders are up on Amazon for the new hardcover manga set for Akira's anniversary: http://amzn.to/2lf3iyZ

From the description, it's also going to include the Akira Club artbook as well as a patch with the iconic "Pill" design from Kaneda's jacket.

Not a bad price for a fancy set of the entire series! Set to come out this October.

Hmm.. I still have the 36 issue color series done by the EPIC division of Marvel Comics back in the day. Any reason to get a new copy?

From what I hear, other than it being a beautiful hardcover set with the artbook & patch, it will also be unflipped with Japanese sound effects left intact.

I only read it through the Dark Horse version; I forgot that it was flipped!

The Epic Comics colored version issues are true collector's items. Not just because of the novelty, but also because the color was so well done too.

Yeah the colored comics were definitely amazing, esp for their time. The coloring was better than even some comics you see today! :lol:

Also, Amazon's pre-order price is currently $65 off, which is pretty nice: http://amzn.to/2n4pU6W
