Sumi, Clouds, Oh My!

Huh. Didn't realize that Vagabond was from the same mangaka that gave us Slam Dunk. In fact, it's been ages since I've read either--mainly due to Vagabond, which follows the life of Miyamoto Musashi, having horrible delays between volumes.

Takehiko Inoue has two art books showcasing his work on the incredible ode to Musashi coming out later this month: The Water and The Sumi, which were apparently done using calligraphy brushes by BoingBoing.

Then again, BB also seems to think the manga came out translated last year, but the first "volume" was released in 2002 and one of the last Viz titles that was initially produced in a single-issue format. But we all know that if you question BoingBoing, Cory Doctorow comes to your house in the dead of night and STEALS YOUR INTERNET. And kills you. Using STEAMPUNK.

Either way, would totally not mind getting these art books from someone with more money than I. Come to think of it, what volume is Vagabond on now these days? I've been getting into MPD Psycho and Junk: Record of the Last Hero.

I just bought both the art books for Vagabond. They are really great.
