Welcome to a brand new Star Blazers experience: the continuation of a story that ended far too early. Of the three TV series, The Bolar Wars was easily the most complex and ambitious, but in the end it was not allowed to run its full course. In response to low initial ratings, Japan’s Yomiuri Network cut the year-long series in half and caused a huge amount of very promising story ideas to go unproduced. After languishing in obscurity for decades, those ideas have been revived and renewed in webcomic form and can be read RIGHT NOW.
