I think it would be a good move to make it a bi-monthly series. I mean it has sold over 100,000 copies. I'm surprised that any retailer would have a problem with stocking up on Berserk rather than some of the other garbage thats out there, and I might add that the garbage manga I speak of does not sell half as well as Berserk. well we'll just have to wait and see.BiQ-- said:Well, this just in:
longish url to darkhorse.com board, there's a post by Chris Warner, DH editor in charge of Berserk
in short: Bookstores are PO about having no more shelf space and there is no end in sight to this "new manga title" avalanche. Going a little easier on bookstores' shelf space (=not cranking stuff out ASAP) makes it easier to carry a series, since they need to keep all of the older volumes in stock as well. Some retailers are not feeling very easy about having Berserk on sale so not making it even harder for them serves a very real purpose.
