Does anyone know where i can buy this? I cant find it anywhere in Bristol or on the Web (including the publishers).
The 'Children' Selection in Woolworths.
i looked in woolworths the other day. i did buy some forks.
from the cutlery section.
you can get all the others, but 3 seems surprisingly hard to get, possibly out of print.
even Titan's own website directs you back towards amazon. thing is, there wasn't a UK printing of it, the ones available here are just american ones with UK price stickers over the top (at a really awful exchange rate as well - thanks, Titan Books!). it seems to be out of print in north america as well, so i would guess that would be why.
i don't recommend skipping it either. the last thirty/forty pages are staggering, probably the best example of graphic fiction i've ever seen.
i have 1 2 4 & 5, and now they are going to re-release them all in new editions (probably for some kind of anniversary) and it will be out of kilter. Darn it. And i have to wait for them to republish. sigh
history of akira book they bought out recently. i wants it.
I wish I had kept all my old Manga Manias, although I can't remember if they published Akira in its entirety and I was probably missing some.
I have a weird UK edition of volume 1 which was colourised. They presumably didn't sell enough copies to justify putting out the rest of the volumes.
i tried to order it online there, but they sent me a letter about 2 months later saying they didnt actually have it.
If anyone sees a copy, who fancies buying it and posting it to me? no one? no.
next time i end up in FP in london :)
it's all so expensive and the huddles of pony-tailed middle-aged men discussing dice intimidate me
Borders in Cambridge has loads of the buggers.
I'd been looking in London for three months when I stumbled on that little stash...
