PostSubject: Issue 40 to 49/50 (except 46 and 47)   Thu Mar 29, 2012 7:42 pm

Hi!

I do have the slight problem, that I could only order the issues up to #39 at fumetto-online.it and am still missing #40 to 49/50 except #46 and 47. It doesn't look like they'll be available there anytime soon.

So this leaves me with three choices:

1. Does anyone here know another store, which still sells these comics (used of course) and delivers them to countries in europe?

2. Since "PK il mito" is currently released at a frightening speed, I could use these, once they reach the missing issues (which would still be months after Banker would translate them at his current pace). Can someone tell me how these issues look like? Are the pages bigger or smaller than the originals? (only important if they are bigger than a normal A4 page). Are the issues hardcover or softcover and are the pages clamped or glued? I need this information because I have to take the issues apart to make good scans of the full- and double-pages.

3. Since some people here mentioned they have a complete collection, someone else could do the scan (only the first part which involves putting the pages on the scanner, pressing scan, and saving the resulting image) I'd do all the following editing. If someone would be willing, tell me and I'll provide you with all the information needed to do the scan.

Thanks in advance

The "Pk Il mito" collection is, I fear, totally impossible to scan. The pages are smaller than the originals and the issues are softcover, but the problem is that they are glued and almost impossible to scan without taking apart the volume. I can't ever read splash-screens properly, the part of the page near the spine is hidden.

Anyway, there's a complete scans archive on the Internet that I would be pleased to refer you.

Yeah, Pk hack. We know. The problem however is that those scans are... not that good.

I mean, I appreciate the effort by those guys, but most of the stuff is really low quality.

Actually some scans were redone for this reason. Infact somebody already complained the low quality of some issues.
Maybe you can try again and find what you need. But I don't know which scans were reuploaded, so well, just control it! Razz

Thanks for clearing this up, even if it's bad news...

I know the scans from PK hack and I really appreciate them. But, without the intention to insult the people who made these scans, this isn't a good scan, especially if you plan to translate and letter it. And no, I didn't resize it, this was actually scanned at 100dpi...

edit: I see they updated this issue to a 13Mb pdf file, so they seem to have reduced the quality even further.

When exactly did this happen?

I totally agree. Still I would check the issues you need, cause some of them may have been scanned better.

Anyway, I can partially help since I do have the original issues #41, #42, #43, #44, #45, #46 and #49/50.

So you could do scans for these? This would be incredibly helpful. If you want, I can send you a PM with all the information on how I usually scan these comics.

ps. I actually offered my scans to the PK Hack archive, but I think the guy I sent my mail to thought I wanted him to add translated scans. I tried to explain my intention to him but he hasn't answered since.

I can't promise I will scan them all and soon (college, you know) but yes, I could. Just tell me the one you want me to begin from (and, of course, format and resolution).

Well, I have 12 issues starting from the Xadhoom trilogy as Finnish releases, and I think some of the issues you need are among those, so if you don't mind that they're not in the original language... <.<

This sounds great! Apart from the bonus stuff, the comics should be the same. So you could do a scan of issue 40, which Maximillion is missing. I'll send you a PM with the instructions, how to do the scan.

Ah... That's one of my favourite issues. Ziggy is so kickass, and his new girlfriend is lovely, one of my favourite one-issue characters. It's the closest PKNA gets to a decent romance.

What can I say, I'm a romantic... Razz

Can I confess that I thought for more than half of the album that Ethan was female?

In my defense, I can say that I was ten!


Also, another very nice issue - one of the best of the A.X. (After-Xadhoom) period.
