Stardust Crusaders #10 - the Emperor and the Hanged Man - Part 1

Hello again, dear readers! Welcome back, welcome back. Today we’re going to take a look at Stardust Crusaders #10, “The Emperor and the Hanged Man - Part 1”, or “The First Death of Avdol”. Without further ado, then, let’s go!

  • Today’s first difference is this bit here, in which almost every face (except Avdol’s) has been retouched, and the little hand on Jotaro’s hairhat has also been drawn better:

  • A couple of lines have been very slightly retouched here on handsome Avdol:

  • In this scene, the monstrous faces of the kids on the very right of the frame have been made much better:

  • Here, Avdol’s jacket has been recoloured, and the man just behind him (from our point of view) has also been retouched:

  • Every face in these frames has been retouched (and thankfully for Joseph):

  • Every frame in this animation has been retouched…:

  • In addition to that, Polnareff has received an additional animation in this particular bit here…:
  • …and the camera movement in general is slightly different:
  • This animation is slightly brighter:
  • The rain effect in the superimposed flashback has been changed here as well (as it was in Episode #06):

  • Joseph and Polnareff’s faces have been retouched here (I’m not sure which version of the second one I prefer):

  • This animation of Hol Horse whipping out his Emperor is also a little brighter:
  • This scene has better contrasts and darker blacks:

  • Some of Emperor’s effects have been recoloured blue, such as here:

  • Here, have another brighter animation…:
  • As in other episodes, the BD version removed the on-screen credits and included a separate ending, as you can see here:

  • This animation has been made brighter and sharper:
  • Once again, Emperor’s smoke effects have been recoloured here:

  • Here you have another two brighter and sharper animations:
  • And a last one, this time just brighter:
  • Let’s have one last difference for the road, one last retouched Polnareff, for your eyes only:

Phew, and that’s it for today’s episode! I hope you enjoyed it, and I’ll see you next time for Stardust Cr- hmmmm? What’s this..? Can you feel it too, dear readers? Something moving, stirring in the air… There is a golden wind a-blowin’…
