I'm also very curious about what "new special edition of Black Jack 17" means. Black Jack 16 is scheduled for May, so that would put Black Jack 17 theoretically out in July. Hopefully there isn't 2 editions of Black Jack 17.
I assume there would be, since we have two editions of the first three volumes. I also suspect that the special edition would have a story or two not included in the regular release. If that is the case, I'll probably practice being thrifty (as thrifty as a manga collector can be
) and just buy the special edition.
Something I've seen on Ebay are collections of Tezuka's horror stories. I'm interested in peoples' attempts at this genre, and while I acknowledge Junji Ito's work to be successfully terrifying, I prefer not to live life terrified by spirals. Just something mildly disturbing is more my taste.
