Rui Araizumi Manga

Rui Araizumi, the illustrator for the Slayers novels, drew six comics from 1992 to 1995 as occasional tie-ins to the novels and short stories which were being published in the Japanese monthly Dragon magazine. In 1995, these six comics were collected and published in one volume. The demand for the collection was so high that two more press runs were completed within three weeks of the initial release. There are at least two different copies of this collection going about - one being a magazine-style format, and one being a slightly-oversized manga volume format.
Slayers : Dragon Comics
