WHAAAAAATTTT! Shocked

Now that's ridiculous. I haven't even read the article yet (well, I'm printing it out to read) but just to hear this I'm appalled. I just finished reading the last volume released.

This is an excellent series. I hope that 'Viz' reconsiders or someone else jumps to the cause.

I'll be back after I read the article.

wow! Frederik Schodt, it's been a loooooooong time since i last heard of him. His book, "Manga! Manga!: The World of Japanese Comics" was what i picked up and sited for some english paper of mine. Very Happy

WHAT?? Viz dropped Phoenix and Black Jack?? Black Jack was a part of Viz history! They can't do that! I remember reading it back in the early Animerica days (or was it some other title before Amimerica?), over a decade ago. I had a regular subscription with them and was buying Ranma on vhs. uh.. I guess I lost track of what was going on, no wonder it's getting dropped. Embarassed

Sorry that I didn't get back on this.

I finally read that article awhile back. Very interesting topic. Of course it doesn't mention anything about 'Viz' dropping 'Phoenix'. I guess this was news from another source. That and the reaction to how a distributor and publisher like 'Viz' could drop something that one of the main "pioneers" in anime and manga worked on and help establish for fans. Sad

If this new is true I hope that 'Viz' will reconsider or someone else will pick up the title and publish it.
