Area 88 covers
First Issue #1 - May 1987
Last #42 - May 1989
One of the first attempts to bring Japanese comics to the United States. Area 88 stars a young pilot named Shin Kazama and his experiences at Area 88, a mercenary air force base. Shin goes from head of his class at a world renowned aviation school dating the beautiful daughter of an airline president to a mercenary fighter pilot bound to Area 88 by a three-year contract that he was duped into signing. Determined to earn $1.5 million dollars to buy his way out of the obligation, killing becomes second nature to Shin. Overwrought with shame, Shin begins to question whether he is still fighting for survival, or like his fellow mercenaries, for the sheer excitement of battle.
