Dark Horse has announced that they are releasing Deluxe Editions of Yasuhiro Nightow’s classic sci-fi series, Trigun. Dark Horse’s Deluxe Editions, including the Berserk Deluxe Editions, are some of the most beautifully made and high-quality hardcovers I’ve ever owned, so I can’t wait to see how these turn out.
Trigun first began releasing in Japan in the ’90s, but it wasn’t until 2003 that it would be released by Dark Horse with English translation. This would be the first time that the world would be introduced to the futuristic, western world of Trigun and its MC, Vash. Its sequel Trigun Maximum followed and it earned even more praise than its predecessor. It has been confirmed that Dark Horse is also releasing Trigun Maximum Deluxe Editions with the first releasing on April 2, 2024, and collecting Trigun Maximum Volumes 1, 2, and 3.
If you are new to Trigun, it is set in the desert world of Gunsmoke, where a mysterious bounty hangs above the head of Vash the Stampede. His guns can pierce a planet, which explains why the locals tremble at the very mention of his name. The reward for his capture or assassination is sixty billion double dollars; Every trigger-happy psycho in creation is aiming to claim Vash dead or alive.
The first Trigun Deluxe Edition is expected to ship out on December 19, 2023, and it collects Volumes 1 and 2 in a 7×10-inch format. Each Deluxe Edition comes with a faux leather cover and foil stamping and burnishing as well as a bookmark ribbon.
Dark Horse released a tentative cover image, which is not final, that you can check out and you can preorder the first Deluxe Edition now at one of the sites listed below!
