just wondering if you guys know about the color(not black/white) version of vagabond?
unlike many jap manga that are black/white color only(not counting those fan arts, episode headers or special occasions), vagabond has an official color version (every single pages!) but its HK edition and its no longer available after episode 160 or so due to copyright issue. I still remember when Inoue Takehiko went to HK comic book festival several years ago, he was kinda shocked when HKComic(HK publisher of vegabond) showed him the color version. after reading several pages, he said to the media "im satisfied with this color version, whoever gave this comic color did a decent job on it"
here are some pics on the color ver. in case u r interested.
hi aaz, really? may be i should check them out.
the pics from above are abit light in color due to the flash from cam, the color should be much richer.
i actually think they did a pretty decent job on the color considering the work it takes to color the manga rather than a piece of artwork.
