Spice and Wolf Volume 2 Cover Released

This past Sunday, Yen Press posted online the official English cover for the second volume of Spice and Wolf, which is due for a release this July.

The cover came along with some new news as well. A new marketing strategy is being implemented by the manga/light novel publisher.

The actual cover of the novel will retain the original Japanese Illustration, while a slip cover containing the new English picture will be placed over it.

Fans are applauding the announcement as a well executed compromise between the mainstream US audience the publisher hopes to capture and the fanbase already existing.

According to a podcast at Anime News Network and Barnes and Noble sales data rankings, the novels are selling better than the publisher had originally imagined.
