Looks like they've decided not to make the paperbacks of the series thinner and with different breaks between the books than the hardcovers had, as they had scheduled a few months ago. That's good, it didn't make much sense to me, although I guess it would have been nice to have some quality Tezuka in the under $10 price point, where most of the pop manga dwell (ASTRO BOY was down there, but I didn't like it too much). Anyway, really good, weird but wonderful stuff if you haven't been picking up the hardcovers.
