Outlanders

Way back when in the mid 80’s, I was reading a manga called Outlanders. It was written by Johji Manabe and produced by AIC for Tatsunoko Production
in Japan. It combined aspects of the Space Opera, Science Fantasy, fan
service, magical girlfriend and Harem genres within it’s story line. It
told the story of alien Princess Kahm and Tokyo News Photographer
Wakatsuki Tetsuya as they tried to save the earth from the invasion
forces led Kahm’s father, emperor of the interstellar Santovasku
Empire. The Santovasku used giant organic spaceships, or “Biomech,” and
they utilized both their advanced technology as well as their mastery
of sorcery in their assault on Earth.

The bad part was that I only found about a dozen of the comics in my
local shops and just a few of them from shops online. (And heck, they
were in the bargin bin. Cost more to ship the issues then to actually
buy them.)

A few days ago I found scanned copies of the entire run as well as the
two extra issues. If you’re interested in reading the series, you can
download them at the links below. Do note that there is some nudity
within the series.

Spiderman outs himself to the press

From here

For a comic book hero, it’s the ultimate taboo.

In the latest edition of the Marvel comic “Civil War” on sale, Spiderman does the unthinkable and removes his Spidey mask to publicly reveal his hidden identity.

“I’m proud of who I am, and I’m here right now to prove it,” the legendary webslinger tells a press conference called in New York’s Times Square, before pulling off his mask and standing before the massed ranks of reporters as newspaper photographer Peter Parker.
