Upcoming Stuff of Interest - Phoenix v8 by Tezuka

PHOENIX VOLUME 8 TP
by Osamu Tezuka

The everyman Benta has become an unwilling samurai who witnesses the senseless killings and the replacement of one brutal regime with another even more so. Civil War: Part 2 explores the folly of man's hunger for power, the futility of war and the desire for eternal life.

Softcover, 5x7, 338pgs, B&W $15.99


That won't be the cover, of course, it'll be another generic Phoenix image. Anyway, it looks like this book will have the conclusion of "Civil War" and then go back and include the short "Robe of Feathers" story that they skipped between v5 and v6. I'm not sure I like the games with the order, but I guess that's what made sense with the page counts, and I'm glad they're not skipping a full story like they seemed to be.

Oh, yeah, Tezuka's masterpiece, yadda yadda yadda, fun but strange stuff, yadda yadda, essential reading, yadda.
