Starcraft: The Manga

The Zerg, Protoss, and Terrans races wage war in graphic novel form thanks to Tokyopop, but something feels different. Starcraft Frontline Volume 1 takes inspiration from Starship Troopers by giving the Terran troops plenty of one-liners after they blow up Hydralisks. The plot doesn’t just involve exploding Zerg into gray goo, although there are lots of explosions, Protoss Templar training takes place in the first chapter complete with unit quotes from Starcraft like “My Life for Aiur”.

    I don´t agree with the idea of calling these western comics “manga”… at all…

    Anyway, I liked Starcraft´s story (what I´ve played, because I haven´t beaten it yet) but I don´t think I care enough to try these or the novels… although the novels seem more interesting to me.
