Scans & Bits

It's only after I've got over forty gigabytes of assorted scans on my hard drive and half my floorspace covered in books, magazines and assorted gubbins do I realise - I scan a lot of things! Like, a lot of things!
Maybe I oughta share them sometime!

This page also serves as big dumb research into Japan-only magazines and manga anthologies, with links to scans and translations from other folks when available.

Feel free to distribute these images as you please. A link back to this page wouldn't hurt if just so people know where to find the rest (nobody was talking about GO! Ketsu Wario until I raised a stink about it, goshdarnit!), but it's a free country.
Interested in translating these? Feel free, and tell me about it! I want to support such endeavours in any way I can, and I'm willing to commission!
If any official body representing the properties scanned here doesn't approve of the images being publicly available, contact me! I cower real easy!
