    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
    """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"
