I was browsing through a local comic shop one day when I saw the image you see to the left here. Even after picking it up, all I could tell was that it was based on Ultima III: Exodus. (Click image to veiw in large)
After a bit of asking around, and with the help of Underworld Dragon and others, we were able to ascertain quite a bit about these previously (mostly) undiscovered Ultima works. For more information you can go to Underworld's Notable Ultima.
Aside from all that, I was able to trade the manga for a copy of Space Rogue, which is an old Origin game I had been searching for quite a long time. Space Rogue is basically the forefather of what later became Privateer. Plus, I was able to trade it to another Ultima Dragon, and a person whom I knew, so it 'stayed in the family', so to speak. It's like when you give away your cat; you really want it to go to a good home. :-)
It's all tied together-- that's the freaky part. Originally the manga was supposed to go to a third party, but a series of fortunate events fell into place precisely in the right order. The third party was able to get other copies from another source, and I was able to trade the manga for another great Origin created product.
