The comics and picture books were done by the same illustrators. Many of the picture books are just extended/repurposed versions of the comics it seems.
Those illustrators have got a more or less recognizable style, so I think they should've been credited at the end of the book. :)

It would be amazing for these Sailor Moon comics to be re-released one day since they're about the 90s anime and they have good storylines too, plus the artwork is very cute and I love it.
Apart from old folks like us yearning for some nostalgia, the young kids nowadays mightn't be impressed by those works, tho.

Yeah that's true since younger people prefer modern art designs now for both anime and manga instead of the older art designs from the 90s, 80s, and before.

I wish. Unfortunately comics published in magazines like this rarely get reprinted. Back issues become really rare, and go for quite a lot.

Here's the R finale comic from the April 1994 issue:







Personally, I like it a lot more than the January 2002 version. What do you guys think?

Which is why I'm doing my best to preserve at least some of them :cool::supercry:

Yeah it would be nice if the comics are able to be reprinted and get translated into other languages, but like you said it's not going to happen and the only Sailor Moon related book that ever got reprinted is the manga series.

It also would have been cool if they'd done comics for Crystal (though maybe it's a blessing in disguise that they didn't? :lol:).
That would've been very interesting if there were Crystal comics being made, but I'm guessing that there aren't any since the 90s anime is still more popular than Crystal.

Crystal isn't targeted at young kids anyway. lol That being said, they could still do so for the childhood nostalgia of 30-something women, just like Crystal itself - for example, there could be a back-of-the-book section in fashion or women's mags serializing Crystal in such picture-book style. :)

Yeah that is true since Crystal is aimed towards women in their 20s and 30s who grew up reading the manga and watching the 90s anime.

As for seeing a Crystal comic in a woman's magazine, I can see that being a thing and that it would give a lot of nostalgia to the women who read the 90s anime comics.

To be honest, it would be nice if there's a new comic or manga about the Sailor Senshi when they're older, but too bad it won't happen and the only story that shows them being adults is Parallel Sailor Moon.

I'd like that happening, whether it'd be a manga, anime, or live-action. :)

Decided to go back and redo my scanlation of the January 2002 version R finale comic. For some reason, the site won't let me edit my original post, so I'll just drop the new version here:






ETA: I was able to edit my original post of the February 2002 / S episode 3 comic with an updated version, so be sure to check that out!

Next up: the August 1997 issue!

The featured comic this time was an adaptation of (part of) Eien Densetsu:





And here's part 2, from the September 1997 issue:








No Outers, and I guess Iron Mouse and Tin Nyanko got beaten off-screen. Not a very faithful adaptation of the musical, but it's cute and fun nevertheless.
