Megatokyo, a popular web comic, tells the story of two Americans, Piro and Largo, who fly to Tokyo on a whim only to end up unable to afford tickets home. Rife with references to video game and anime culture both here and in Japan, it is a story that contrasts the cultures, the characters, and their own perceptions of what is around them.
DC has no plans to go back to press on these issues, but will continue to assess each sold-out issue on a case-by-case basis.
