Speaking of Astro Boy reprints I just bought on eBay what are called: "Astro Boy Club vol.# 5 & 6.

I believe that these are supposed to correspond with the boxed reprint collections of the original Kobunsha Astro Boy manga, but I don't know if these were included in the boxes or sold separately. In total there were six volumes. (See image below.)

In vol. #5 there is a copy of the episode titled: "The Broadcasts from Outer Space". This two part episode appears in Dark Horse vol. # 12. The main difference is that in the Dark Horse volume the splash page for the second part is not included. (This page can be seen in the section on Astro Boy Club magazine for 11/65 in the hard cover book, "All Illustrations of Mighty Atom" aka the Astro Boy encyclopedia.)

Vol. #6 features the manga story, "The Face in the Rock" as well as the first part of the "Ti-Tan(ium)" manga. (The second part is synopsized and is not included in this volume. Also on the last pages are the covers of the twenty issues that feature Astro Boy and his clan which are spot lighted.)
So if any one has more knowledge of these volumes please let me know.--Astrobuddy

I remember hearing about them a few years ago and was wanting to get my own copy. I am unsure if i am looking at the right addition or not. If anyone knows anything about them and how i can get a copy (i live in the USA), let me know!

Amazon has some of them but I don't think it is all of them.

I am sure if you hunt around you'll find it or look at your local comic book store. :heart:
