Per tradition, a new thread for the release of a new book. This one is so jam packed with comics there wasn't much room for anything by way of extra bonus material. Still, enjoy your offline version MegaTokyo!

MegaTokyo book FAQ

When is Volume 7 due out?
Ask us again when chapter 12 is finished on the website.

Where can I buy the MT books?
Pretty much any place that sells manga. I.e. many common book store chains such as Border's, Barnes and Noble, Waldenbooks, and the online equivalents of those stores. Also Amazon, of course. Probably your local comic shops as well, and most online anime/manga specialty stores. Naturally, they are also available in the MegaGear store along with the T-shirts and such.

Should I buy the books from MegaGear or a book/comic store?
QUOTE (Fred's 874 rant)
I often get asked which is better, to order the book from us at the MegaGear store or buy it at a bookstore or a comic book shop. The answer is simple - if you would like to purchase book 4, please purchase it in whatever way is most convenient for you. Every purchase, no matter where you buy it, helps support Megatokyo. We do profit a tad more from books sold through the MegaGear store, but it is also important that the book do well in bookstores and comic book shops. It makes publishers and retailers happy with Megatokyo -- and that's a good thing.


How many books are there?
The first three volumes of MegaTokyo are published by Dark Horse, and the fourth through sixth are from CMX/DC Comics. You may see mention of the first edition of Volume 1 that was published by IC Entertainment/IronCat. Don't worry about that one, the second edition from Dark Horse is better and has an additional section of sketches from MT's early developmental days.

What strips are covered by the books?
Volume 1 is Chapter 0, or strips [01] to [133].
Volume 2 is Chapters 1 and 2, or strips [134] to [306].
Volume 3 is Chapters 3 and 4, or strips [307] to [525].
Volume 4 is Chapters 5 and 6, or strips [526] to [742].
Volume 5 is Chapters 7 and 8, or strips [743] to [972].
Volume 6 is Chapters 9 and 10, or strips [973] to [1268].
(Guest strips and some of the SGD strips are not included in the books, however.)
All the strips are of course available for reading online.

How can I keep up on the latest MegaTokyo news?
Read Fred's rants. They're in the left column under the comic.

Are the books available in anything other than English?
Yes. They are published in German, Polish, Italian, and Japanese. A French version is pending last I heard. There is also a fan-run translation project on the web.

@crysalis - only the first three books are available in German for the remaining books you have to keep up with English. Actually I never bothered buying the books in German because you loose quite a lot of the humor in the translation. However, there are more comic strips in German on megatokyo.de, I guess until the end of chapter 9 but there wasn't posted a translated strip in years.

So my suggestion - read the original. Positive side effect - you will train your English skills. cool.gif

Not to be nit-picky, but I thought it was kinda funny that TRSI is offering the book for $13.39. They soooo should have knocked off another two cents at that point, and gone for t3h funny.

According to Amazon my copy of the MegaTokyo Omnibus arrives this Tuesday (April 14, 2014).

Wwooot !!

Anyhow, it comes with 2078 100 x 75 inch full color 3D pages of Original Content plus several thousand more covering books 1 through 7 and continuing to book 13 (yes that's two books past the end of the comic !!!). You'll be able to sneer with confidence at others silly predictions of the future here in the forums. And that's not all. It comes with a Free nuclear powered reading lamp and full length sparkle bunny leather couch with MT star of your choice already reclining on it. All delivered to your door by special MT customized SONY armored black ops blimp (yours to keep) !!


Wait,... you DID... pre-order it right? Oh well, it's still a nice book and absolutely essential to own. Get it or all your friends will laugh at you. No, I mean even worse than they do behind your back.
