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).

Deploy Anti-Kanata tactics! Well, here we are. After 14 epic installments, this is the end of Sidonia. I’m sad to see it go, but then again it was starting to get expensive. I also felt like I was starting to sense Nihei’s fatigue from cranking these things out for the past few years. If you look at his last series, Biomega, you can see a marked contrast between that style and the end of Knights of Sidonia. This one continues the sparser, more lightly shaded artwork that we have seen in the last few issues. It’s not my favorite but it still carries the weight and scale that he has always excelled at. Also, the story wraps up in fine form and definitively concludes, something which some stories can't seem to do anymore. It was a great series and one which I look forward to reading again without the lengthy break between publishings. If you are looking for more from this artist I recommend Biomega or Blame! which is now in print again and worth collecting as well.
