I picked up Gaiman's Sandman omnibus and I'm about half way through the series.  I've been a fan of his for a while due to Good Omens and American Gods.
Sandman is concentrated doses of what he does very well and I've had my hair blown back a few times already.  The surreal nature of the artwork is an interesting contrast to the hyper detailed work we celebrate here.  It seems needlessly dark at times compared to other stuff I've read from him but I would recommend it to anyone who wants to read some panels from left to right.

Up till now I've always been penniless, but I recently came into some money and am very exited to finally be able to legitimately support this AMAZING series and start a physical collection of volumes! You can get the current 3 tomes bundled for ~$120 on amazon rn.

Anyone have an idea of the cut someone like Miura would personally be getting from these, like somewhere between 15 and 35%?

No one in the public would have access to contractual information like that. But given the draconic way in which big Japanese publishers tend to operate, I'd be very surprised if Miura gets royalties on each purchase. Berserk as a property is owned either in large part or in full by Hakusensha. So they'd be the true benefactors of any revenue. And I doubt it's on a per-sale basis. Instead, Dark Horse pays Hakusensha for a license agreement in which they can publish Berserk to a US audience. Some portion of the overall gross revenue likely goes to Hakusensha as part of the licensing agreement, and presumably a portion of that finds its way to Miura, but no one could tell you the specifics.

BTW: sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but $120 isn't a tremendous deal for the deluxe editions. I got Vol 1 for $24 on sale, and it's likely vols 2-3 will also go deep discount at some point before their release, so that'd be about $72 total.

His choice in creative partners on these adaptations is proof enough of masochism. :carcus:

Maybe Miura is masochistic enough to direct it himself after he finishes the manga.

I'd say the ideal option for an adaptation is to do an offshoot story seperate from the manga, like Sword of Berserk.

The idea of an anime exclusive side story doesn't sound half bad, as long as it's written and guided by Miura and there's a seasoned team of animators and directors to execute it, with a comfortable budget or at least a lot of collective passion and dedication to compensate. These are all such idealistic circumstances that I don't see it happening though; however, if the right conditions were met, I'd be among the supporters.
