Spice and Wolf 2

April 26, 2010

Yen Press is seriously one of my new favorite publishers. I need to buy more from them starting now! They’ve just posted what they’ll be doing for the second volume of Spice and Wolf. Because of the strong backlash, they’ll be publishing the second volume with the original Japanese cover on the actual book, but they will all come in a slipcover with a new photographic cover. Not to mention that the new cover is basically the Japanese cover photographed, and in any case looks a thousand times better than the first volume did (even if it weren’t basically the same as the Japanese cover, it would automatically be better because it does just look better).

I seriously applaud Yen Press for doing this for the fans, because it gets the new fans they want with the new cover and if you don’t like the cover you can just take it off and you have the lovely original art underneath. You don’t have to worry about getting a slipcover, because you get both anywhere. It really is the best thing they could have done.

    Ah that’s good, no more porno covers.

    I’m wondering what they’re going to do with the “my girlfriend is a geek” novels. (the orignal cover seems pretty normal so I can’t imagine them changing it.

      Right? I’m so happy about this~

      Yeah, the covers I saw looked super normal…so I can’t imagine them changing them like at all…but who knows…

    Wow, volume #2’s cover looks not to bad actually!
    (definitely kicks the ass of vol #1’s cover. That volume will never go anywhere without it’s slipcover…)
