The Outer Zone (Manga, 1990)

Overview

A couple years back, on one of my rare visits to a used book store, I stumbled across a manga series I’d never heard of before. It wasn’t the name that caught my eye - it was the face on the cover. An elf girl, with green hair - except over her left eye, which was covered by purple locks. She had enough cute to catch my eye, and the whole miss-matched hair color was enough to make me decide to find what I could of the rest. Originally, I’d been planning to try selling the series on eBay as a rare manga - never know what you might get, right? After about half an hour of searching through the hopelessly unsorted manga stacks, I managed to unearth a total of seven volumes, 5-10, and 12. The series, I finally noticed, was called The Outer Zone. Having collected what I could find, I returned to the hotel I was staying at and decided to take a look before I sold them. I discovered, to my pleased surprise, that the series was in truth a sort of cross-over between The Outer Limits and The Twilight Zone - hence the series name, I imagine.
