DC comics has announced the release of Batman: The Jiro Kuwata Batmanga as a Digital First series beginning this Saturday, July 5. This will be the first time Kuwata’s collection is translated and uncut for all of us Batfans to purchase as a complete collection outside of Japan. In keeping true to the original work, pages will be represented in the traditional Japanese right-to-left reading order, and will vary in length from 15-32 pages for $.99 each. If you are a Batman, Inc. fan, you may recognize the villain from the first chapter.
It is Digital First, but later this year all 1,000+ pages will be printed and released in three paperback collected editions.
I’m excited! I’ve dabbled a little in the Batmanga book released back in 2008 and thought it was very creative and fun. Will you be downloading the series each week? Hold off for the printed editions? Not interested at all? Let us know in the comments below.
