« Star Fleet / Comics - Japan

While X Bomber was broadcast in Japan, there were two manga comics, apparently written by Go Nagai, published in two different monthly childrens magazines:

Publication Issues Artist
Monthly Shōnen Jump 1980.06 - 1980-08 Naoki Kamohara
Televi-Kun 1980.11 - 1981-04 Makoto Ono

Initially, I found a photo of the inside cover for the Shōnen Jump manga, which made me wonder what the manga itself looked like. I then started to come across one-or-two scans of individual pages and I set about collecting all instalments, to find out how the story went.

What I like about these manga is that they combine familiar characters, ships and settings, which are presented in a new light, with some interesting new characters and ships.

Twitter users in Japan mentioned commented that the manga weren't accurate to the show. The comic book artists responded that they had no opportunity to watch the show before the manga stories had to be finished. All they had was information about the setting of the show and some publicity images and they had to find their way from there.
