Hi Usagi Fans,
We’ve received the advance copies of Saga #5 in both Hardcover and Paperback form. What’s neat is that they have a comparison page of the updated artwork for “Tomoe’s Story”! Apparently Sakai-Sensei wasn’t able to find the original art for the reprint (published in the late 80’s, early 90’s), so he redrew the entire sequence! It’s quite interesting to see the evolution of the character designs.
Sorry about the line in the text, it’s really hard to scan a paperback the size of the Saga books. I tried to scan the actual duel sequence, since you can really tell the difference; but again, scanning a Saga book is quite the challenge! I guess you’ll just have to get a copy of the book for yourself!
