Comment: So, I have the second collected book and was thinking of getting the first but ended here at the DCM. Just curious how these would still be up here, doesn't Dark Horse now own the rights? Thanks!

Comment: Hi 3F, glad you like them. Once a book goes into the public domain ANYONE can produce a book with it. They can only copyright THEIR version of the book contents. But the original books are FOREVER in the public domain. (Unless Congress changes their mind again which has happened more often than I sure like)
