KNIGHTS OF SIDONIA TP VOL 01
(W/A) Tsutomu Nihei
One of the manga world's most intriguing artists returns with a science-fiction tour de force which combines post-apocalyptic action, modern sci-fi video game tropes, and a traditional Japanese aesthetic. In his follow-up from the hit Biomega series, Tsutomu Nihei tackles the world of hard science-fiction by creating a modern space comedy inspired by the genre's hits from his youth.
Former architect turned crazy bad ass manga-ka, Tsutomu Nihei crafts biotech worlds of cybernetic apocalypse filled with hook handed soviet bears, techplague corporate zombies and motorcycles that put Kaneda's to shame, all blanketed in a bleak greyness of the all to real near future. A true visionary, both of Nihei's previous works, Blame! and Biomega, stand as pinnacles of not only hardcore Sci-Fi, but cyberpunk, bio-punk and any other edgy adjective placed here-punk. We can only thank our good fortune that he had the insight to realize architecture was clearly not as important as making stupid funny books for less money. RECOMMENDED BY CASEY!!!!!!!
