I'm surprised to see no else read this? I think it's fairly rare we get to sample stuff from Ikki (Viz's SigIkki attempt aside), so far I really like the art style and the story seems good enough.
A considerable number of IKKI Comix have been scanlated over the years. HQ groups like Kotonoha, Mangascreener, Illuminati, Hawks, Omanga, KEFI, etc. have scanlated many series from IKKI, as well as similar manga over the years. Fans of that style of manga never really were as magazine oriented as their shounen counterparts. The groups that scanlated them never used magazine raws, many would even buy and scan their own tankobon to ensure quality.
