The majority of backers are under the Print Copy section. Big surprise there.

Some people prefer print. Some prefer digital. That's why they offer both options.

I'm a print man all the way, myself. And the print tiers for these kickstarters generally get more backers than the digital only ones, so it's certainly not an uncommon preference.

I finished Ode to Kirihito yesterday. As the first Tezuka manga I actually completed, it was a fretful and dark, but also gripping read. The references to Christianity were also a pleasant surprise.

Tezuka was a very thoughtful man in regards to religion and philosophy.

Christianity and it's themes are reflected upon in a fair number of Tezuka's works, actually.

Glad to see you enjoyed Kirihito, Shadow.  :)

The new release date for the first Astro Boy omnibus is now in September.

It's nice to know they're still coming out, thankfully.

Alabaster has been successfully funded.

I await my rewards later this year.

I wish I had the extra money to contribute, but a friend did so at least that's something.

Was worried whether this one would get funded for a second there. I'm so glad it has! And it's great to have another backer of these Tezuka Kickstarters on this board as well. :thumbup:

The first trailer for the new Astro Boy anime is now out.

The designs don't feel like Tezuka at all...but the art style is freaking BEAUTIFUL so I don't mind one bit! I'm really excited about this now.  ;D

Yet another newly translated Tezuka manga, The Castle of the Dawn, is now available to purchase and read digitally.

Dang, DMP has really been cranking them out lately! I really need to get around to collecting these once I get some room in my budget.
