Contributors may interpret this task as creatively, expansively, or parsimoniously as they like: style, genre, and length may all be freely chosen.
Any treatment of First Contact will be considered.Preference will be given to contributions that seek to explore the impact of First Contact on the politics of knowledge.
Text may be used if desired (in any language, as appropriate but please provide English translations), but text is not required. The purpose is to explore the expressive potential of manga.
