Four Bomber X comic books were released, which re-tell the events of the first four episodes of the TV series.
The contents of these four volumes were re-released as two "albums".
Issue Code Title Release Date
1 78093 Invasion 1983.11
2 78094 Ultimatum 1984.01
3 78095 Force One 1984.03
4 78096 A l'Attaque du Convoi 1984.05
78097 Album 1
78098 Album 2
The four original books contain roughly 48 pages each; 21x28cm, and were published in 1983-1984 by Greantori.
The two albums contain around 100 pages, as you'd expect.
As you can see, the illustrations feature heavily a type of Alliance ship, never seen in the series; a magenta wedge-shaped bomber with 6 forward-firing lasers.
As shown in the below photographs, kindly provided by Matsu Kami, the Alliance Battlecruiser is kept the same; but shown only as a silhouette, while the astrofighter carriers are changed substantially.
These re-imagined carriers can deploy 8 of the above magenta craft, which replace the Alliance astrofighters from the show altogether.
I had a bit of trouble getting the later editions, as well as the Album 1 and 2 compilations.
In the end though, I found all 6 publications, partly through eBay and the rest through Rakuten.
By getting my hands on some, I was able to clear up a few questions that I had about these comics.
