An tragic-epic of a space opera manga drawn and written by Johji Manabe. In a nutshell Outlanders invloves some bio-technicaly advanced aliens known as the Sotovansku who invade and destroy the earth, and a goofy young Photographer named Tetsuya who manages to kick their collective asses (and bags the daughter or their ruler, Princess Kahm) as he overcomes his overwhelming goofyness. What is really interesting about this series is that the author managed to create a huge cast of complex and interesting characters, but manages to kill almost all of them off by the final issue (a real tear jerker). Overall, a highly recommended reading. If you like undying love, guns, swords, war, romance, humor or breasts then swing by your local comic shop and pick up all 30+ issues today!
