Some interesting news came earlier in the year when it was announced that acclaimed manga author Inio Asano would be attending the Toronto Comic Arts Festival in downtown Toronto in May, which would be his first visit to North America.

At the same time, TCAF also announced that Viz Media was publishing an TCAF-exclusive english print run of the Solanin Epilogue manga, which was announced and released in Japanese late last year. This epilogue release also comes at the 10 year anniversary of the english publication of Solanin by Viz.

TCAF has since concluded, but had promised they would sell any unsold copies of the book on their online store after the convention. Sure enough, the book is now available to purchase online! The list price is $11.99 CAD, plus $10 CAD shipping to the United States.

This seems like a good opportunity to get what might be a potentially hard to find book, if the exclusive claim holds true.
