    DescriptionIn volume two, the Sidonia has engaged a new type of Guana. This armored-type is strangely aggressive, and most of the young pilots who have confronted the monster are not prepared for this change in stragedy. Rookie pilot Nagate Tanikaze has even fewer completed flight-hours, but that does not prevent him from devising his own plan of attack when his squadron is in danger. Feeling the stirrings of a bond that is precarious at best given that humanity itself is in peril, he ignores orders to save a colleague left behind. And then upon returning to the Sidonia, the history of the Guana is revealed to Tanikaze, not long before battle and a rival's jealousy leaves him alone in space again.

    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
    "Compelling, subtle, spectacular and even funny, [Knights of Sidonia] is a yarn no adventure aficionados or sci-fi fanatics should miss." - "Now Read This! ""With strong, bold line work, an eye for detail and a fantastic sense for world-building, Knights of Sidonia is a science-fiction story with some intriguing twists on those well-worn story tropes... Nihei's thoughtful treatment and measured approach to his artwork makes this a whole new experience" - "NEO Magazine" (U.K.) "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 "
