The post-apocalyptic bounty hunter Vash the Stampede is returning for fans everywhere with the sequel manga ‘Trigun Maximum’ getting a “Deluxe Edition” from Dark Horse Comics.
Anime News Network reports, “Dark Horse Comics announced on Tuesday that it will release a hardcover Deluxe Edition of Yasuhiro Nightow’s Trigun manga, as well as a hardcover Deluxe Edition of the followup Trigun Maximum manga. Both releases will feature the original oversized 7×10″ page format for both manga. Trigun Deluxe Edition will have 672 pages, and will compile the two volumes of the Trigun manga, while the Trigun Maximum Deluxe Edition’s first volume will have 584 pages.”
The manga was originally serialized by the Japanese publisher Shōnen Gahōsha in their ‘Young King OURs’ magazine.
Dark Horse describes the “Deluxe Edition” saying, “On the forbidding desert planet of Gunsmoke, a sixty billion double-dollar bounty hangs over the head of Vash the Stampede, a pistol-packing pacifist with a weapon capable of punching holes in a planet. Every trigger-happy psycho in creation is aiming to claim Vash dead or alive—preferably dead!—and although Vash believes in nonviolence, he won’t go down without a fight. And when Vash fights, destruction is sure to follow!”
They also revealed concept artwork for the release on their Twitter feed:

Crunchyroll describes the synopsis of ‘Trigun Maxium: Deluxe Edition’ as follows,
“Vash the Stampede, the galaxy’s deadliest gunslinger, emerges from two years in hiding to help his beleaguered desert homeworld, Gunsmoke. But the Stampede’s many enemies have kept their motors running, and they’re back on his trail and determined to bring Vash to ground—hard! And a new crowd of bounty hunters, badasses, and braincases are also looking to cash in the sixty-billion double-dollar price tag on his head!”
The original ‘Trigun’ ran from April 1995 to January 1997 while ‘Trigun Maximum’ was released between October 1997 to March 2007. The show had two anime spin-offs and a feature animated film ‘Trigun: Badlands Rumble.’
