Mystery Gamera Manga

Postby Godzillian » Sat Sep 21, 2013 10:52 am

I found this on tumblr recently and was wondering if you guys have any info on it? All I have mangaged to find on it so far is that its called "Legend" and is a short story about Gamera, Gyaos, and the fall of atlantis.

Maybe it's Gamera's back story with his connection with Antlantis. Are there any other monsters besides him and Gayos?
"Am I glad he's frozen in there and that we're out here, and that he's the sheriff, and that we're frozen out here, and that we're in there and I just remembered we're out here. What I wanna know is where's the caveman?"

It was on tumblr so I'll try to link the post. Basically it said that the person who has this found it for $5 at a comic store along with a book about the making of Gamera: Guardian of the universe.

I completely forgot about this. Is this something that you actually read, or its a Japan exclusive and nobody has any images?

Isn't Atlantis suppose to be very advanced. More advanced than modern society. Looking at the images. They don't look very advanced to me. :|

I'd expect robes or any clothing like that like in Disney's Atlantis: The Lost Empire.

Well aliens are naked a lot of the time in movies despite having ships that are capable of space travel and advanced tech. Maybe at some point civilizations get to advanced for clothes :lol:

I found these images on tumblr. The person only said they found it at a shop in Texas for $5 along with the info I gave out earlier in the thread. If you guys want I'll link the original tumblr post.

They've moved beyond pants.


Pants are the one thing holding us back.

HEy guys Zornow here with some info on this mystery...
I OWN a copy of this book, its a softcover Gamera movie book from the 90's in the middle is essentially an illustrated story about the origina of Gamera and gaos created by the race from eons before.. its not a manga, but illustrated pics with text.

the illustrated original story is only 12 pages long.
I will try to scan this... however my copy is damaged from so much use over the years and some of the manga pages are actually falling out ( due to a crappy spine job). SO i have to be careful with the thing... will try to get to it this weekend if i have time..
" What the Moon brings..."
"...and what the night leaves behind..."
" ...are the reasons' why..."

I've spent years trying to find the book where this manga is located, I just give up. :(
Could anyone who owns it take some scans or something, please?
