Monthly Dragon Age - March (2/9/2013)
There really isn't much to report that we don't already know about the return of Highschool of the Dead. The long Daisuke Sato interview, which is printed in its entirety in the booklet that came with this issue and in two parts in the two new Full Color Editions (if that is the same interview), could contain some nuggets of information, but I don't believe there is any specific date. If there was, I'm sure it would appear on the announcement page we already saw that simply says it will return this spring.
By the way, here is a better scan of that page:
There is at least some news for HOTD in this issue. Full Color Edition Volume 7 will be out next month on the 9th. The announcement is in the extra booklet, which, other than the interview, has a recap of the story (a good sign that the story will pick up where it left off) and Chapter 29 in full color. I probably won't bother scanning it. If I really wanted to, I might as well wait until next month when I can use higher quality scans. Anyway, I was disappointed to find that there were no new illustrations in the booklet or the FCEs (other than cover art). So there's really nothing worth scanning for you at the moment.
Other than that, this was an uneventful issue. I'm actually considering not doing these monthly updates anymore since there will soon be no hiatus to keep you updated on. After all, the hiatus is what prompted these monthly updates; they only turned into more general news when HOTD info ran dry. I'll leave it up to you. If you want me to continue these monthly updates of whatever I find interesting and scans of the covers, let me know in the comments below. Otherwise, I may just post whenever there is big news about one of the series we are directly involved with here.
I'll try to have your monthly raws later today.
