Official Translations

With a handful of new official publications out, it may be time to recap the titles that are available for purchase so you can support the man and have a real nice lookin' bookshelf.

[See list on Amazon Wishlist]

Museum of Horror- 3 Volumes
These are Dark Horse's old publications. Volumes 1 and 2 are Tomie's full story, and volume 3 are a handful of shorts picked from the 16-volume Kyoufu Collection. Since they're long out of print, these will run you a decent amount of money if you really want a copy, and your best bet is to find it on Ebay. While a great set, don't feel bad about passing these ones up (for the time being).

Tomie - 1 Volume
Heck yes! VIZ is releasing a hardcover deluxe edition of Tomie! There was a 2001 set but like Museum of Terror is on the pricey side.The Amazon preorder page has it set to come out December 20, 2016 for $35 USD.

(Note: These will not include the shorts contained in volume 3 of Museum of Horror).

Uzumaki - 3 Volumes
Uzumaki has had at least 3 runs in English. VIZ first released them in 2002, again in 2007, and most recently released a nice hardcover deluxe edition (2015). Unless you get lucky, the deluxe edition is the best deal, running ~$15 USD on Amazon.

Gyo - 2 Volumes

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