Fuckin' ace. This is awesome.

I'm glad to see underground manga seems to be gaining a steady foothold here in North America.

Outside I appear calm but on the inside I'm doing a happy dance.

Looks like a great collection - and if it's Top Shelf, the production values should be good too.

Anybody got any idea when we can expent this to be released?

Speaking of Gekiga, what happened to that Yoshihiro Tatsumi autobiography D&Q were translating?

I'm excited. What I liked best about Pulp, beside its manga, were its articles and features. Maybe AX will have something like that too.
