Stainless Steel Armadillo

 STSA   (Antarctic, 1995)

™ and ©1995 Ryukihei

The title of this series probably reflects less of a play on The Stainless Steel Rat than a questionable translation of “Magical Armed Dragon.” Drawn and written by Japanese creator Ryukihei, Antarctic brought out this five-issue, English translation of the series in 1995.

The story focuses around two women, Tania and Sasnia, the daughters of Targst Badam. While venturing in a strange, magic-ridden city, they crossed paths with Prince Fante of Sandallos, who was being pursued by agents of the evil king. When they come to his aid, they become targets of the evil king’s men as well. Hopelessly outnumbered, their only hope rests in a magical “dragon seal” which they carry, which allows Prince Fante to assume the protection of a set of magical dragon armor.
