In 2010, Presspop put out a hardcover slipcase volume collecting Tank Tankuro by Gajo Sakamoto, the first time the pre-World War II robot manga from 1934 had been translated into English.
A robot character who could change and transform into different shapes, it basically inspired every Japanese robot comic and anime that followed, from Astro Boy to Transformers.
With a slipcase cover by Chris Ware, the book sold out ridiculously fast.
It’s now being reissued by Fantagraphics for August 2017. Will it disappear as quickly?
