This is bull. Try pulling an excuse of this kind to have a months-long delay in any other kind of job and see if you don't get your ass fired.

Not even the most perfected gun in the world demands for this kind of delay to draw from someone who is supposed to be a paid artist.

But then, manga is different when there isn't enough editorial control and self-inflated artistes know they can toss any flismy excuse to fans who will roll around for them anyway, especially in Japan, where fanbases have the self respect of long-cheated wives.

How are they going to get fired? All the magazine can do is cancel the series -- but they aren't going to do that as long as they believe it'll be profitable.

Hard to make money out of a series that never comes out.

But if they aren't writing, there's no need to fire them -- it costs the magazine nothing to let them take a break.

Refer to a couple of pages back and you'll have your answer.

They are not going to fire either of them - HOTD is still a hot commodity, even after all of this time. As long as he keeps putting out random drawings of the characters from time to time, their publishers can't really complain too much, even if they want to hurry up and get the series over with. Besides, they both have other projects that they are working on - and they are still making their publishers money via those outlets and whatever revenue still comes in from manga purchases and royalties from MadHouse for producing the anime AND that one cheerleader zombie hunter game 'Lollipop Chainsaw'. I bet they got a nice royalty for using the outfits from Saeko and Rei.

Other artists can get steamrolled by their publishers, especially if it's the first couple of serializations that they have done but Satou's been in the industry long enough - he knows how to cover himself.

Ehhhh so I was on Amazon just browsing and for the sake of it I searched HOTD just to see what vol they were up to and to my surprise I find that the 2nd vol of the colour Omnibus is to be released next year in July.
Can anyone confirm that this is for real?
Cause I think I might just go ahead and pre-order it.

Yes yen press said they would make a second color omnibus but their is a catch.

In Japan their is no color edition for volumes 5,6, & 7 and their is no volume 8 in the works since it's been on a long hiatus.

So what they are doing is coloring volumes 5, 6, and 7 themselves again like the first four volumes. It will be only 3 volumes worth not 4 so the page count will be less this time around.

I own the english and the japanese versions and the japanese version has better paper, and a superior coloring job.

As for the cover art since the first one was mirrored off the japanese one they will have to pick out a official image to substitute for the new cover. Plus we don't know if they will get extra art work from the various art books as bonus like the first one.

I'll still buy it since I have everything HOTD I can get my hands on.

The extra artwork for HOTD and Triage X I already have more than likely it will be images from Shouji Sato's Lighting Pop Artbook which I own.

I see it, but I don't believe it. HotD coming back? That's crazy talk.

It's going to ramp up my excitement just in time for it to go on hiatus all over again.
