Muscle Strawberry

Muscle Strawberry「マッスルストロベリー」
Manga Muscle Girls (漫画の筋肉娘)



I stumbled across the pages above while browsing the web. I did a little bit of digging and found out that this manga series called Muscle Strawberry (マッスルストロベリー) only ran for three chapters in the short-lived Comic Bound  (コミックバウンド), which was published by Enix. The magazine was bi-weekly and only got 5 issues back in 2000 before it was canceled. Muscle Strawberry ran in the first 3 issues. The manga artist is Masato FUYUKI (冬木真人).

That's pretty much all the information that I've been able to get on it. I'm becoming obsessed with hunting down this manga. The art is pretty good, and the artist definitely was a student of anatomy. I'm really curious what the story is like. If anyone can find these issues, please note me. Here are the covers for the issues of Comic Bound where Muscle Strawberry appeared:

There is a new site called 「絶版マンガ図書館」 in Japan that opened this week, which seeks to publish "extinct" mangas digitally by seeking out the right holders on works that are requested by the members to be "resurrected".
I have signed up and requested the "resurrection" of Muscle Strawberry, so we'll see if this gets anywhere...

Maybe you could ask Ad Meyer to search this rare gem for you.

hehe maybe. AdMeyer is a busy guy though... it'll be tough to find this since it's already 14 years old at this point.

No doubt it is out of print, but I have heard there are used manga stores in big cities that might hve a copy of rare (or sadly, unpopular) mangas. He might be also interested in such a (I dare to say) historical find.
