Just download Berserk.
I picked up Berserk one through five at a used book store for ten bucks. I've wanted to read berserk for a while, ever since I pretty much gave up anime not done by leiji matsumoto to just read manga, but why is it so fucking expensive to buy a new copy?

Because Dark Horse is niggers.

Reading on a computer sucks ass.

Also not trying to start a shit storm but what makes them think it is worth 13 bucks? Sure Vagabond is worth ten and so are some others but god damn no manga is worth 13.

Damn, that's a good deal. When I buy manga I'm usually paying $8-10 just for ONE volume. It's terrible. Especially when I remember that a Japanese tankoubon is not only cheaper but of better quality, with nice paper and even some color pages.

Well I feel you there I pre order alot at barnes a noble but I don't pay full price. I told them I'm a student teacher though so I say everything I buy is for school and get 20% off. I also scout this used bookstore across the street too though. also got the first five volume of Tough for just five bucks.

Ignoring the fact that you're an idiot for using the word "niggers"...

Dark Horse Horse's stuff is often more expensive because they use nicer paper and covers. For instance my Kurosagi Corpse Delivery volumes feel and look quite nice. They also have copious translator's notes. Compare that to Tokyopop who print on cheap paper and have almost no notes, ever.

Basically, it's a trade off. I'd probably still rather pay less for less, though.

Not Berserk. Too many chapters that aren't even translated in English, so you have no choice if you want to read it all.

Look at Viz's vagabond ten bucks for the color pages and the highest quality pages. I don't know how they do it but I'm glad you even get a history section at the back.

The best way to help for reading manga on a computer is to get a widescreen monitor that tilts (or just tilt it yourself) 90 degrees. And then set the picture to tilt the way same. It works best with a second monitor. Anyway, now you have a perfect manga/comic reading monitor, doujins too.

Yea but I can't bring it to work.

I'll have to take a look at that. I'm actually waiting for the omnibus edition to come out, though.Those are really nice. I got the Rurouni Kenshin one and it's 3 volumes in one with color pages and a few notes in the back for $22. Viz's Tekkon Kinkreet omnibus is also gorgeous. Definitely one of my favorite manga purchases.

An e-book reader if you really cared...but I'm not sure it's worth it.

Viz omnibuses of Vagabond are in september. Also Inoue's art books. The omnibuses are only two volumes though.

Vagabond's just plain better then Berserk too.
