Battle Angel Alita in a Comicbook Format?

I was snooping around Borders today, and happened to stumble across volume 2 of a Battle Angel Alita comic ( In a short, American sort of comic book format rather than the manga)

Does anyone have any idea how these came about? And if so- do you know how their story fits in with the manga? I didn't take the time to look through it. I was trying to buy my Record of Lodoss War box set on sale and get out of there :P

Yeah, I love it Unfortunately, i've only read the first 3 volumes or so. I can't afford to spend 16 dollars per volume *sigh* But the art and storyline are great.

I've been having two american comic book issues of BA for about 8 or 9 years now. It was part of the first manga I read and the beginning of my introduction to anime in general. I still love the series thought I haven't seen or read much of it in a long time.

Weird. I'd like some details on this. I had the Japanese books, then sold them off while in college. Later, I bought the Viz books. If there's more aside from this, i'd certainly like to have a look at them. I wish there was more Battle Angel anime :/

Speaking of Yukito Kishiro, has anyone else read Aqua Knight? I liked it and was just wonderting what you guys thought of it.

I have some of the Viz books. The ones i'm talking about aren't them. I'll stop by the bookstore on my way home today and get some details.

I think the new series being release is an alternate ending to the original. It is the creators intended ending. I haven't read Aqua Knight, is it good?
