MISC. MANGA, *Bubblegum Crisis: Grand Mal

Gen 13 writer and creator of the English Dirty Pair comics Adam Warren gave of us this sweet slice of colorized manga heaven in this U.S. interpetation of Keichi Sodana’s “babes in armour”. This 4-part mini-series is actually a prequal to the original Bubblegum Crisis OVA series, but taking place after A.D. Police Files.

A runaway Boomer threatens to destroy Megatokyo, and the Knight Sabers assemble to take care of him. This has a much more agressive Priss still wearing her trademark blonde wigs and punkish attitude. Alot of the story seems to revolves around the rouge Boomer set out to cause chaotic destruction, with the GENOM corporation out to get him and cover their asses.

This was one of Warren’s best anime off-shoots and he did a brilliant job of colorizing it. The action is hot hot hot, and Priss is even hotter than that. If you liked either the BGC OVA or the BGC: 2040 remake, then you must try this out for size!
