“The Ukrainian version of The Ghost of Kyiv, which will soon be released in Ukraine: it’s cool,” wrote Matsuda-san.
We will remind that The Ghost of Kyiv is a manga dojinshi, i.e an amateur manga published at the expense of the author himself. Whether the author plans to continue the series is still unknown.
As is clear from the comments to the author’s tweet, the Ukrainian version is published by Kharkiv publishing house Ranok , which specializes in educational and children’s literature. But there is no manga about the Ghost of Kyiv on the website of the publishing house itself.
The editorial board of Mezha asked the publisher questions about the date of publication, circulation, and price, and is waiting for an answer.
We will also remind you that the The Ghost of Kyiv is a collective image of the pilots of the 40th Tactical Aviation Brigade of the Air Forces of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, which protect the sky of the capital of Ukraine, and who suddenly appear where they are not expected.
In addition, we remind that the MiG-29 fighter with a gray pixel of the Air Force of the Armed Forces of Ukraine and a livery in honor of The Ghost of Kyiv can be flown in Microsoft Flight Simulator .
Update. The first Ukrainian edition is 10000 copies, English – 2000. Preliminary cost – 150 UAH. The publication is expected in mid-July.
Перший наклад — 10000. Наклад англійською — 2000. Вартість 150 грн. Оптимістично очікуємо книжки в середині липня, проте пам’ятаємо: типографії — в Харкові. Над перекладом працювали з 12.05. Цьому передувала робота колег, які через посольство розшукали шановного Мацуда-сан.
