« Star Fleet / Comics - France
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. Project Status 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.
Please don't hesitate to get in touch. I'll be glad to hear from you and I'll reply as quickly as I can.
