Coming on August 23rd, Dark Horse will be releasing Vampire Hunter D Volume 26: Bedeviled Stagecoach. Volume 26! It's not just that the light novel series has run that long. Volume 31 was released in Japan last November. There are longer running series. Guin Saga survived original author Kaoru Kurimoto and volume 141 was released in Japan in this April. But, reaching 26 volumes in an English release is quite an achievement. Preparing for it, Dark Horse has prepared a preview.
