"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
About the Author
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).

I seldom buy or read comics these days, but anything by Tsutomu Nihei I pre-order far in advance. Fans of his know just how difficult (read: expensive) it is to acquire these after they’re out of print (e.g. BLAME!). This series is excellent and shows no signs of flagging, I hungrily devour each as they are released - I recommend you do the same!
On a side note, I am praying omnibus editions of Blame! will be made in the near future because the price of some single volumes are INSANE!!
Many things occur in Volume 2 but in a very natural pace. It feels as though every event that has occurred in the story so far, happens because it does (naturally, not forced).
Anyways, its thanks to Volume 2 that I have made the decision to keep on reading Knights of Sidonia. Time to go buy a copy of Volume 3.
