« 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.
