Oh, that's a pity, thought about getting it for the Kindle if it came out.
I remember there being more backstory to Raze but between books, comics and the film it muddles a little. It would be interesting to see a miniseries of comics with more canon storylines covering characters like him, Erika etc
I was thinking more of the modern day scenes too, hadn't thought of the travel guides, I was looking more at maps and so on online. I'll have a look for some cheap info books in town.
I only found out about the Anime shorts last night, some of it is based in the 18th/19th century so it might have some more backstory, have to wait for a region 2 copy of them.
