Just a brief note... it's not major news, but checking in on some titles I'm anxious to read in 2008, I noticed that release dates have been set for the first two volumes of Vertical's epic publishing undertaking of BLACK JACK.
This release schedule seems like a pretty healthy clip, with these books coming out less than two months apart. It bodes well for getting the entire series out by the end of 2009 or early 2010. I could definitely live with a volume every other month of Tezuka's raddest series. Annotate your calendars accordingly!
BLACK JACK, VOLUME 1 : SEPTEMBER 23, 2008
BLACK JACK, VOLUME 2 : NOVEMBER 18, 2008
