2001 Nights is a science fiction manga that ran from 1984-1986, and was translated in 1996.

It was also one of my first exposures to manga-qua-manga (the comic store I had just started going to at the time was selling cheap 'grab bags', and I loaded up on manga, GNs, and 2000 AD - the selection was quite diverse).

Anyway, on with the show...the series is an anthology series of stories set in the same universe, but only loosely interconnected, covering a span of several hundred years, starting at the dawn of humanity's spread into space, and ending, obviously, well into the future. I'll be skipping the preliminary stories and picking up with Night 7: Lucifer Rising, which is spread across issues 2 and 3 of the translated series.

(Remember, it was written in 1984, so there's a lot in the politics and science that are a bit outdated. And, in this story, in particular, the the theology's kind of whack. But it's a good story, just try not to get too distracted by that stuff.)

Also remember that, while it is manga, it's manga that was translated in the mid-90s, so read left-to-right, since it got flopped.

Dun...dun...dun...duh-dun! (Dundundundundun...) )

Whoo! Cliffhanger! I'll post the rest (which took up the entirety of issue 3 - this part was only half of issue 2) over the course of 2 more posts, though I make no promises, nor even guesses, on the schedule which those posts will come on.

12 pages from 40.

Oh, FYI: The first two episodes of Korra will be aired officially and legally on the creators' Tumblr account, Korra Nation, this Saturday. I'll be writing a review, along with one for Young Justice. Whether I'll post it here or not depends upon whether it conforms to the new rules. If not, I'll post a link to my blog when I'll also be posting them.
