Berserk Miscellaneous / A lack of Berserk - Dark Horse & DMP
« on: April 05, 2013, 06:03:34 PM »
This has happened in the past.  The stock of a single volume would dry up and be a bit challenging to find, and we would see sky rocketing prices that I could not imagine anyone paying.  Months ago, a few volumes started to dry up and become difficult to find.  I was curious to see if the problem had been solved and checked out Amazon.  What I found was that the problem has not been taken care of and has increased.  I know Amazon is not the only place to buy Berserk, and that some other places may currently have what it doesn't, but I would assume it to be generally peoples first stop and that it shows a trend.

As a fan I am glad to see people buying Berserk.  Maybe the movies, as disappointing as they are, have exposed people to the manga causing sales to increase.  At the same time I am annoyed because Berserk obviously could be doing better if there was Berserk to be sold.  Does anyone know who is responsible for printing Berserk and keeping stock up?  Is it Dark Horse, or DMP, or are they both massive failures?  Like I said Amazon is not the only place to buy Berserk, but I checked other sellers(Barnes & Nobles, RightStuff, Etc.) and they share the same problem.

I figure most people here already have all the Dark Horse volumes, or collect another variation, and might not be aware of this.
