Porco Rosso was a manga!

And in other Porco Rosso news, Miyazaki originally drew Porco Rosso as The Age of the Flying Boat.
"Hayao Miyazaki wrote and painted The Age of the Flying Boat in 1989 for Model Grafx Magazine in Japan.  This story was later evolved and expanded into Studio Ghibli's 1992 movie, Porco Rosso.  In 1993, Animerica Magazine scored an impressive scoop: an English translation, released in three monthly installments, as part of their extensive coverage of Porco Rosso and all things Miyazaki".

Story here, and all parts posted online here.  Beautiful!
