Planet Aurum, eh? Assuming that is actually the name of the planet and I'm not misinterpreting the German, I haven't heard of that before. And is that the Black Knight?

Yep, Aurum and the Black Knight. The Exploriens are a research mining team that uncovers gold in this story.

Aurum is direct Latin for "Golden" (or maybe Gold), if that clears anything up.

Apparently there was a colourist before Jesper:

Fushi, it'd be awesome if you could add these to your album for easier viewing.

 

It probably goes without saying, but I'll be editing together English versions of the other 1996 comics once Sadie is able to procure them.

 

And while I'm thinking of it, any chance we could get this topic renamed to something more appropriate? We've got a lot more going on now than just a German Rock Raiders comic.

Thanks. You missed a bubble on page 8 though.

I've edited the topic title. Might be nice to put a summary of all this in the OP, too, as this topic is 20+ pages long now... What should that summary contain?

Well of course I missed a bubble! It's a tradition at this point. Should be fixed now.

 

A link to a gallery of the comics would be good for the OP (Fushi's probably, though it doesn't have the Prinzenrolle comic at this point), maybe a quick paragraph on what we know of the comic's background as well. It'd be nice to see the original first post preserved as well, for posterity's sake.

Yeah, that's the obvious stuff... I was basically just hoping for somebody to summarize the comic's history for me, as I don't know all of it with 100% certainty off the top of my head and there's 21 pages to go through. :P I'll dig through and assemble everything. Not like I have much else going on tonight.

I'm on it! ...but I'm not sure where to put them, in relation to the rest of the pages. Is this even within the main comic's continuity, or is it it's own separate thing?

I guess I could stick it at the beginning, or at the end. I can put a link in the description to skip right to the start of this comic, but unfortunately I can't do any kind of formatting in the description, so far as I can tell.

BTW I guess I should probably update the description anyway with more detailed/accurate/updated information, not to mention it's worded a bit awkwardly.

ALSO: Holy s*** is that Spyrius? I completely forgot that was even a thing. Wow.

I'd put it at the beginning. Until we see more of the normal 1996 comics it is hard to say if this fits into the main comic continuity. It is quite possible it won't, but I personally would still sort it with the other 1996 comics since it was made at the same time and features the same LEGO themes. That's more of a personal preference thing, though, so by all means do what makes the most sense to you.

Done. Prinzenrolle comic added to album, and description has been completely re-wrote. Let me know if it sounds okay, I considered going more in-depth about the history behind the comics but I realised I didn't have a good enough grasp on the situation to do so, so I just kept to the basics.

Thomas Warming (illustrator for the Time Cruisers boardgame) sent me some things recently. Among them are some sketches for some of the boardgame cards, and some conceptual drawings of a LEGO restaurant he designed.

"I also did a lot of concept development for lego in the 1990's for Lego Futura.  All the work I did for lego was through a danish advertising agency called Courage

except for the concept work, which was direct. I also did concept design but that was done in a lego-look
meaning cars and stuff but they wanted me to draw it so it looked like real cars and not lego - that way they could focus on elements they liked and try to convert that into the lego-look
so all that stuff is not really lego work unless you know. Sadly back in the day all original material was owned by the agency or Lego and not the artist."-Thomas Warming
