looking for  
A few book-wants:

English-translated manga:

* Akira by Katsuhiro Otomo, vols. 1 - 4
* Any of Hideshi Hino's "Hino Horror" series except vols. 5 through 9, 12 and 13 (most interested in vols. 1-4) and/or Lullabies From Hell.
* King of Hell by Ra In-Soo, vols. 4 and up
* Back issues of Pulp

French or Japanese ok:

* [Vampire's Smile] by Suehiro Maruo.


* Iron Man: The Cinema of Shinya Tsukamoto by Tom Mes
* The Woman With the Flying Head: And Other Stories (Japanese Women Writers in Translation series) by Yumiko Kurahashi and Atsuko Sakaki

Does anyone know what became of the translated series of Taiyo Matsumoto's No. 5? Dead in the water after volume 2??

The Half-Priced Books in my area has a slew of the Hino Horror manga for sale (almost a shelf's worth) - I go there frequently and could check specifics if you like.

Hee - our local bargain bookstore is where I got most of the volumes I have, though they only ever had about 8 of 'em. If you can pick any these up for *under $4* (not including shipping), let me know - Amazon seems to have most for $3.50 to $5 (and I know they'll charge more for shipping), so if I can undercut that, I'll be happy. Let me know if I have anything you'd like in trade, too.

Sorry about the time, but I finally made it over to Half Price books. They have (in multiple copies, I'm really not sure why) vols. 2-14 of the Hino Horror books at $3.98 a pop, several of which could be fit into a flat rate Priority envelope. Are you still interested?

And, if you're still interested in trading, and still have the Japanese Comickers volume, I would be interested.

Hey, thanks for getting back to me - I am definitely interested, but only in vols. 1 through 4, 10, and 11. I do still have the Japanese Comickers galley copy, and recently updated my trades list a little if you want to skim over it again. Let me know what you'd like to do.
