We know there has been some discontent out there regarding the availability of the SPICE AND WOLF COLLECTORS ANNIVERSARY EDITION for those fans outside of North America. Please know that we’ve heard you and wanted to update you to help alleviate any frustration.
Originally, Yen Press was only granted rights to publish this title domestically. When we saw the outpouring of support and enthusiasm from fans internationally, though, we set out to get global rights. Today, I’m happy to report that we have secured those rights and will be able to publish an international edition of the SPICE AND WOLF COLLECTORS ANNIVERSARY EDITION. This edition will ONLY be offered to accounts outside of the US.
While this special international edition will not be numbered, it will have a different color ribbon from the original edition which we hope you’ll appreciate! This printing should be available mid-December and when we have more information to share, we will — including when the information has been shared with accounts for preorder.
Our fans — everywhere! — are very important to us, and this is just the first step in making Yen’s titles more readily available to everyone!
