I have bought both WATER & 墨 and before I received them, I did not expect a lot because I know it is a collection from comics drawings during Vagabond was ongoing in the past 8 years. However, after I got the actual book in my hand, I know that it is correct to buy both books. The large size of the book with high quality printing & vibrant colors (and the outstanding drawings by Inoue Sensei) have brought life to the characters. My excitment in reading Vagabond has all returned when I flip through the pages recalling the stories. I think all Vagabond fans must buy both books as a collection it...em. You will not regret it. Even non Vagabond fans can also learn the drawing techniques from Inoue Sensei through these books.
PS: both WATER & 墨 also include some drawings which cannot be found in the Vagabond comics. It also gives you access to a secret website where you can read the drawing analysis for EACH drawing and download secret wallpaper. Highly recommended for everyone.続きを読む ›
