Perhaps one of the most awesome things you can appreciate as a manga collector/reader is the beauty of volume covers drawn in every series. Every volume cover represents a glimpse of what is to come in each volume. At times, certain series covers highlight a specific character that has a heavy presence or shining moment in the volume. One series whose volume covers stood out to me was Shuzo Oshimi’s "The Flowers of Evil." For those who collect the volumes, you will notice that every 3 volumes, there’s progression from light to darkness to possibly light again and the artwork is used to reflect change. “The Flowers of Evil” represents life itself.
