Diamond's Hardcover Black Jack Adds Exclusive Stories

posted on by Egan Loo
Vertical to publish 3 volumes of limited hardcover edition for comic distributor

Vertical will publish three volumes of a limited hardcover edition of Osamu Tezuka's Black Jack manga with exclusive stories for Diamond Comics Distributors. Tezuka pioneered modern Japanese manga with the Black Jack medical drama, Mighty Atom (Astro Boy), Jungle Emperor (Kimba the White Lion), Metropolis, and many other popular works.

Vertical is also publishing a regular softcover edition of Black Jack which includes stories in the order that Tezuka personally selected for a deluxe edition in Japan. Tezuka chose not to include some stories in that Japanese edition, but Tezuka Production announced it will be re-publishing these excluded stories after his 1989 passing. The exclusive stories in Vertical and Diamond's hardcover edition are culled from these excluded stories.

The hardcover editions will ship on September 23, the same day that the regular edition ships. Previews from the first two volumes of the English edition are now available on Vertical's website.
