Good luck on #15, that one was really underprinted or something. Even though I had the series on my pull list, my comic shop never received the final book for the series. Every time I have searched for it, it only shows up in a random seller and for several times its cover price. It is the only book by Koike and Kojima published by Dark Horse I don't have.

You could always try AnimeCastle.com. They have some of the books you want.

I had a somewhat disappointing experience with them, but I wasn't purchasing books.

Uh-oh... If you don't have it yet, then it must be hard to find. :oops:

I took a quick look, and they do have several volumes I need.

Might I ask what was your disappointing experience? Would it keep you from buying from them again?

I checked mycomicshop.com, but it looks like the under $5 #2 must have sold already, as there is only a $7.95 version available.

I checked Amazon earlier today, but I didn't spend much time looking... I'll take another look.

Thanks guys! I updated my first two posts and deleted my requests for volume 2, 5, and 10.

I placed an order for them from Anime Castle.


Only looking for volume 6 and 15 now.

Steve, guess what just popped up on Thrift Books.

https://www.thriftbooks.com/w/path-of-t ... q=31662311

But at $128.92 i think I'll pass... :roll:

BTW, I was able to get volume 6, so the only I am missing is volume 15.

Maybe we should sell raffle tickets for it?
Or how about a time share with 10 other people? :roll: :roll: :roll:

Steve, did you see that book 15 which was listed on Thiftbooks at $109.72 (price drop from $123.23 back in April), is now gone. I wonder if someone actually paid that price, or if it sold by some other means?

The wait and search continues....

Thanks to the kind and generous assistance of a fellow Dojo member, who found volume 15 at their local comic book shop, I have completed my collection of "Path of the Assassin"!

Probably no chance that shop had a second copy.... :(
