    Question What are your favorite mangas in hardcover form?

    Where do I find them in the first place?
    Can physical comic books be still in good reading condition during my old age?

    Hardcovers are a lot of $$$ for local shops to tie up; I've had more luck with Barnes and Noble for the exotic stuff.

    I'm mostly looking for collections/omnibus/hardcovers for the classic stuff... Late 80's and early 90's when the Japanese stuff was breaking through. I was the demographic back then, nostalgia and all... Kinda keeping an eye out for that stuff.

    HC manga seem to be unpopular in this forum...

    I'm currently working my way through Vinland Saga and that's hardcover. I was mid-way through Battle Royale when they put out the hardcovers of that so I switch mid-way. Doesn't look that nice on a shelf but it was more cost effective (price of 3 single volumes vs. 1 hardcover). They also just stared putting Berserk out in hardcover so if you've never read it that's a good way to start.

    As far as where I get them, normally I get them from Barnes and Noble or Amazon.

    - Ghost in the Shell (Kodansha)
    - Highschool of the Dead (Yen Press)
    - All the Junji Ito by VIZ Media LLC
    - Berserk (Dark Horse)
