Caravan Kidd   (1992)
Search for 'Caravan Kidd' on eBay

Publisher: Studio Proteus (Dark Horse Comics)

Publication Date: July 1992 - April 1993

Country: United States

Language: English

Notes:
Caravan Kidd is the second manga by Johji Manabe to be translated for an American audience and released by Dark Horse. Caravan Kidd follows the exploits of Mian Toris, a red-headed, sword-slinging female, and her two "pets": Wataru, a human teenage male, and his business partner and sometimes-criminal associate Babo, an akogi with the business acumen of Donald Trump and the stature of a large gerbil. Mian is on a mission to bring about the downfall of the Helgebard Empire, commanded by Empress Shion, and she misses no chance to dive into combat whenever it is called for. All three of them have the kinds of prices on their heads that would make Han Solo jealous, and it seems like no sooner are they out of one proverbial frying pan then they are dumped into another proverbial fire. But not everything is as it seems, and along the journey there is plenty of opportunity for Manabe-san to hit the reader with something that is completely unexpected...and yet that makes complete sense when viewed in the big picture. Caravan Kidd was translated by Dana Lewis and Toren Smith of Studio Proteus and published by permission of Studio Katsudon and Johji Manabe. Nozomi Omori is given a special thanks credit in each issue; though it is not specified in the books, he was serving as the agent in Japan for Studio Proteus at the time, and is likely responsible for getting the rights to translate the book into English. It was released in three parts for the US audience; part 1 comprises 10 monthly issues, and was reprinted in volume 1 of the 3-volume Trade Paperback series.
