Incredible ! It's such a pity the facsimiles don't get printed all at once in the English-speaking world (we have to wait for Last Gasp to decide on a date, change it, then change it again, then move it back to the original date, until it's eventually published !) :o)

Will these be readily available in bookshops or do you think only in the Tinitin shop?

I'm in Tokyo next week so will see if I can find them.

Welcome, igagli! It’s good to know that there is now some competition for manga and “Hello Kitty” in Japan! ;-)

igagli,

Sorry didn't see your post before I travelled out there, just got back 2 days ago.

I found the Tintin store (smaller than expected) and the staff were great, I turned up at 10:30 as most shops open at 10:00 but they don't open until 11:00, but they opened just for me anyway so had the store to myself.

Bought Tintin in America and Cigars of the Pharaohs, think they are the only 2 available at the moment as facsimiles, at least they were the only 2 in the shop.
