What's the cost...?

I don't know but apparently it's... Deadly! I Wonder how they come up with that kind of stuff.

We finally get to see the Dark Horse cover for volume 38. Looks like they're not changing it after all.

Well I'm glad about that. I wont get to see smoke coming out of Guts head everytime I'll read the volume. Thx for the heads up.

Not only do you lose that tacky border but you get to see more of the cover illustration to boot (hello moon)! If it wasn't for the equally tacky bloodsplatter and pseudo-kanji font of the DH releases it would almost unarguably be the superior version. Just stick a spartan BERSERK label on it for the win, DH.

This ain't your granny's comic book! Unless your granny rides a Harley, chews Cubans and carries a sawed-off shotgun! This font is heavy metal just like Berserk! It's a viscera-fueled series that's spawned a horde of salivating zealots who would sell their own babies for just a few more blood-soaked pages! "JUST ONE MORE HIT, MIURA-SAMA!" If you can't deal with that, go back to your crib, Mr. PeePee Pants.  GET OFF MY PLANE!

Pretty sad state of affairs. Oh well, only need to wait 20 more years before we get the deluxe reedition. :SK:

Are you sure you're not working for Dark Horse?  :guts:

Haha indeed, indeed. Though I would not be surprised to see them put a double extra sketchy edge for an oversized super Deluxe edition. "We've double the size of the page for you gory pleasures." or "You thought it was hard for your eyes in a manga format, wait 'til you see our oversized volume..." haha

Besides being very inaccurate and misleading, it seems the cover illustration for volume 38 was also originally made with the old "Jets Comics" cover template in mind, rather than the new "Young Animal Comics" one. Had the volume 38 been released under "Jets Comics" imprint, the moon and the clouds most likely would've appeared underneath the lower half of the old " ベルセルク" logo

My sentiments exactly. The sooner the better for I am always thirsty for Berserk.  :guts:

Of course this doesn't mean that I want to story to be rushed. I appreciate a lot the pacing Miura sets for his story.

Can't wait to hold vol 38 in my hands!

July 5th is for comic shops. July 18th is for other bookstores/online stores such as Barnes & Noble and Amazon.

Comic shops always get the latest volume 1-2 weeks earlier than other bookstores.

Thx for the clarification. I was gonna order it online but I guess I'll visit the comic shop instead. Even though I'm sure they'll be late in getting it. As usual... :/

Rightstuf is having a 30th birthday sale on their site right now. Dark Horse volumes are getting bundled in 3-4 volume sets for really cheap. And individual volumes are selling at $7.79. I'm pretty sure I've never seen new editions go for under $8 before, so now is a great time for anyone still missing any volumes, or for those that want to start their collection.

Today is the last day of this sale. Some volumes are currently out of stock, but you can still order them at the sale price.

That's awesome! Will definitely pick these up eventually as backups. I love seeing companies making efforts to stay relevant in the digital age. Just to add to this, the digital version of the manga is also available directly from Dark Horse here:

https://digital.darkhorse.com/books/see_all?source_series=826&name=Berserk

It appears you access these versions through DRM via Dark Horse's web viewer or iOS/Android apps. It would be even better if the physical Dark Horse prints came with codes to unlock the digital versions, though I'm happy enough with this.

EDIT: I wonder why the volumes are $4 more on Comixology?

Comixology has a 50% OFF Dark Horse Special going on right now so you can get them there cheaper than anywhere else, put DH17 in your cart and you should be good to go

That's awesome. I picked up what I could afford with just a day's notice  :farnese: . Quality is good, not great. 2-page spread merging is still noticeable.

Still, this is a bold new era, folks. Time to erase the existence of all those shitty Hawks scans. Berserk has been legally scanned.

Could you post a sample panel? I'm waiting for the manga scan where you can see the stippling. :serpico:

Comixology has previews. There's a little "See what's inside" link under the cover image if you're on a page for one of the volumes.
