Product description

After a forbidden room is unsealed, heroic pilot Saito is no longer the only legendary Sidonian with a deceptive avatar on board. Meanwhile, an incoming asteroid forces the spaceship's mobile units to skirmish in a positive-gravity environment. Calling the shots is Assistant Commander Yuhata Midorikawa, still new in her role, unsure but unshrinking.

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 ""["Knights of Sidonia" is]""just great fun, written at a (slightly) slower pace than "BIOMEGA", which allows for some character development and intriguing side-plot building.  The art is pretty much identical to "BIOMEGA" and there are definitely some amusing little nods to that work, including amongst other things, a talking bear. I will, obviously, be reading this as soon as it comes out." --"Page 45" (U.K.)
