Tomie Hardcover by VIZ

Give it to usssss!
In the past year or so Viz has given us gorgeous hardcover omnibuses of Uzumaki and Gyo. And now they're tackling Tomie! This title's last release by Dark Horse was around 10 years ago, and will cost you around $50 per book on Amazon (yikes).

If the Amazon pre-order page is accurate, this newest omnibus will run $35 and will be released on December 20, 2016.

In the meantime, I'd like to marvel over how much momentum Junji Ito has been getting over the past two years alone. Two titles re-released (Uzumaki, Gyo), two new volumes (Cat Diary, Fragments), and now Tomie. Since 2002 a few different publishers have been trying to introduce and re-introduce his stories into English, and finally they've found some traction. Herein lies the importance of purchasing physical copies! Let the publishers know that we want them to keep 'em coming!

I've gotten so much spam it's ridiculous. Just trying to moderate it a bit!
