That does have the ring of truth to it. Seen it one time so long ago.

Yes, i still have 5 volumes of it on my shelf.

did a quick comparason to the Barnes & Nobel HB Vol 1 I have and they are the same, but colored.

The coloring seems fine, maybe a bit dark in spots, but nice overall.

I think I had almost all of them at 1 time, but it took forever for Epic to get the last issues out.

just looked @ the web site provided above.

Seems the collected vols. never finished the comic run.

If I remember correctly, I had a combonation of single issues and collected trades from Epic, most of which have vanished over time and moves.

Epic never finished them due to money issues. I'm missing about 9 of the later issues. but when Dark Horse announced theirs, i hopped on board, and wasnt disappointed.

dark horse are the way to go as theirs are how it was originally presented - in black and white


saying that, it is not 100% accurate. their collection is backwards as in the pages are left to right and as any manga fan should know, manga is presented right to left, so all DH's collection is mirrored

I have the entire run of the Marvel/Epic comics. I haven't read them in years but I remembered really liking them.

I have the first Dark Horse volume and remember loving it but never got around to getting the rest.

I should pick them up since they can be found cheap nowadays I think.
