Synopsis:
When an alien force lands in Japan and commences their attack, the entire population is caught off guard. Tetsuya Wakatsuki, a 19-year old newspaper photographer, has his camera and is in the process of capturing everything on film when one of the invaders attacks him - but unlike the creatures invading the city, this one is young, humanoid, and female...

Reprinted/Collected in:
Outlanders (1988) TPB vol. 01

Notes:
The English adaptation of Outlanders contains a number of in-jokes and a few edits and changes from the original Japanese version. Several of these are to be found in Issue #1.

Probably the most prominant of these are the re-drawn panels on pages 25 and 26. Contrary to popular belief, Dark Horse and Studio Proteus did not redraw these panels to censor them. Rather, they were redrawn by Johji Manabe himself because he felt the original artwork was too graphic and violent.

One of the more amusing in-jokes can be found on page 6. The signs on the building in the original Japanese manga are blank, but in the US edition, they read "Dark Horse" (in katakana - the publisher), "Studio Proteus" (again in katakana - the translators), and Hakusensha (in English - the original Japanese publisher).

Dana Lewis and Toren Smith translated Outlanders.
