Voices of a Distant Star to Return From Vertical
The Voices of a Distant Star by Makato Shinkai and Mizu Sahara was one of my best comics of 2006, which is when Tokyopop released the translated single volume in the US. Now comes word that Vertical will be bringing the book (based on an anime) back into print. No date announced yet.
The touching story of two young friends irreversibly separated when one is sent away to pilot a robot fighter is full of nostalgia, unspoken feelings, and thoughts of what might have been.
Update: The new edition of Voices of a Distant Star can now be ordered from your local comic shop with Diamond code DEC17 1938. It’s due out on February 21, 2018, with a cover price of $12.95. Amazon will have it available a day earlier.
