After many years out of print, Triangle Yasuhiro Nightow’s manga series finally gets a new print edition, courtesy of Dark Horse Comics. The Trigun manga and its sequel Trigun Maximum have been out for more than 10 years in Japan, translated and published by Dark Horse Comics in English. However, the series ran out of print, driving the prices of existing physical copies of the series sky-high.
While Trigun and Trigun Maximum are still available digitally from Dark Horse, many fans have been clamoring for a new print edition, something that seems likely to happen after the new Trigun Stampede anime. A viral tweet by Twitter users brought the issue of Trigun to the limelight in early May, at which point Dark Horse Comics stated that “[Trigun] fans should stay tuned” for possible reprints.
