Greetings one and all to the foreign section of the CBCS boards. It's been a long time coming but the boards are (finally) up and running!

I have no doubt that many of my comrades from FCC (Foreign Comic Collector) will be on here regularly so if you have any questions about foreign books post them and either myself of one of them will answer as best we can based on what we know.

If you have any foreign books, let's see pics!

Here's a little trinket from my collection to kick things off.

There is my boys!!!!!! How bout some foreign Star Wars?

Weekly Shounen Magazine #18, published on April 30 1978, Japan. The holy grail of Japnaese Star Wars(comic at least) arrived at my door recently as a gift by my good buddy Henro and I about cried. This is the very first time Star Wars appears in Japan in comic book form. The release was timed to hit two months before the Japanese movie premiere in June of 1978. Published within Shounen, a hugely popular manga magazine that began its life in the late 50's. It made perfect sense to introduce Japanese readers to this world by way of Weekly Shounen. Japanese usually read/flip pages right to left back to front with the spine on the right similar to Arabic and Hebrew. With this in mind the publisher had a conundrum with how to format the traditional western comic pages. So what happened is interesting… Japanese readers would have to drop their usual way of reading and flip thru towards the middle where the classic Chaykin cover artwork dictated the beginning of the story. Then they would read the pages from left to right back towards the front and what would be their cover which was for all essential purposes completely backwards for them!!!!! Freakin crazy right! Also adding to the coolness is some of the interior paintings and the cover I believe were done by Noriyoshi Ohrai, the famed Japanese illustrator who did many of the Japanese theatrical Star Wars posters. I could be wrong but I think these paintings might be his first published Star Wars work? Either way this book is absolutely amazing and a huge part of foreign Star Wars culture and history. Needless to say this book is now going deep into my collection never to escape.

How about a bangin booty? The Mexican non-canon Spideys are a true sight to behold. Diverging from the American canon storyline right before Gwen Stacy is killed. In this alternate universe Gwen lives and Parker eventually marries her.










Look at Peter, lovingly staring into Gwens beautiful eyes... using that slammingly drawn body as a pillow! HA HA HA Im tellin ya, eventually when hardcore spidey collectors really get wind of the existence of these amazing non-canon books you are gonna see many webheads seeking them out.

Matt was looking into possibly having someone help out with that but for the time being I don't know one way or the other if we'll be able to make it happen.

Besides... who wants to listen/watch me babble about funny books in other languages?

Prior to 1962. American comic books were not distributed to Australia. First books were Amazing Spiderman around issue 7. Before that only original Australian drawn books were sold. Or reprints of American books. Sometimes only 6 months from when they were originally printed in the states.
these reprints had newspaper covers and had the story finish on the back covers and a lot did not have any ads in them.
And the print runs were very small compared to U.S print runs when you take into account the population of Australia
