    Description"CORE EXPOSED" Outer space, the far future. A lone seed ship, the "Sidonia, " plies the void, ten centuries since the obliteration of the solar system. The massive, nearly indestructible, yet barely sentient alien life forms that destroyed humanity's home world continue to pose an existential threat. Nagate Tanikaze has only known life in the vessel's bowels deep below the sparkling strata where humans have achieved photosynthesis and new genders. Not long after he emerges from the Underground, however, the youth is bequeathed a treasured legacy by the spaceship's coolheaded female captain.

    Author Information
    Tsutomu Nihei is an internationally known Japanese comic artist and draftsman. Born in 1971, Nihei made his debut in the comics world as the winner of the 1995 "Afternoon Magazine" Four Seasons Award for short stories. He then briefly worked as an assistant to veteran comicker Tsutomu Takahashi before making his break-through hit "BLAME!" (published by Tokyopop). The "BLAME!" franchise was so well received worldwide, that it inspired an animated mini-series and eventually drew the attention of Marvel Comics in the US. Nihei would later go on to draw Wolverine (X-Men) and HALO comics for Marvel to great fanfare. An architectural student, Nihei's early work were mainly wordless, relying on visuals and backgrounds to tell their stories. Now, his works are deeply rooted in hard science-fiction, as was seen in the multiple NY Times Bestselling books "HALO: The Graphic Novel "(published by Marvel Comics) and "BIOmega" (published by Viz Media).
    Review quote
    "Tsutomu Nihei has been knocking on America's door for ages now. Tokyopop released his ten-volume epic "Blame!," pronounced "blam" like a gunshot, and its prequel, "Noise" in the United States. In 2006, he earned a coveted spot in the amazingly awesome (and financially successful) "Halo Graphic Novel," standing shoulder to shoulder with superstar artists like Moebius, Simon Bisley, and Geof Darrow, among others. " - "Comics Alliance ""One of"Knights of Sidonia's" chief strengths is that it doesn't bog down the intrigue of its world with too much unnecessary, bloated dialogue...It's definitely a solid pick-up for Vertical; there's not really anything else in their catalog like it. Dig into the first volume and see if Nihei's gorgeously depicted wreck of a sci-fi future doesn't secure an immediately tight grip.""- Otaku USA "Knights of Sidonia" is off to a solid start with its first volume...All in all it's a promising and entertaining offering and one that's left me chomping at the bit for the next volume." - "Comic Book Resources"
