About Appleseed Alpha Manga Omnibus (Hardcover)

Appleseed Alpha features story and art by Kuroda Iou in this hardcover omnibus edition.

Before the events of Appleseed, Deunan, a human woman and former SWAT officer, along with her combat-cyborg lover, Briareos, arrive in war-torn New York City. The city’s mayor is a dapper but delusional cyborg, preparing for the UFO invasion he’s convinced is right around the corner. Briareos’s powerful abilities earn the pair refuge, but there are few human comforts to be found in a city catered to cyborgs…

After the couple parts ways, the mayor’s nightmare takes a turn for the worse. Deunan’s group of outcast humans may be just the extra manpower the mayor needs—but can the two factions put aside their differences in time to save the world?

Interesting Story but the Art hurts it

by -

I love Appleseed and always want more of it. I might have done without this one however.

The reason for the bad score is the art. It looks like it was drawn on a dry-erase board. It actually gives me a bit of a headache trying to read it. The cover looks nice, it has shading. The rest of the book is pure black marker on white. If you search the title some pages were loaded online that you can find from a simple Google search. Most pages are much busier than what you can find however.

As for story... It's the official Appleseed Alpha manga? I mean the copyright for the movie is listed on the back of the book. Otherwise apart from Deunan, Briareos, the cyborg Two-Horns, and New York City nothing is similar to the movie. It actually has more to do with Cyborgs vs Natural Humans but in a getting different needs to be met in a world of dwindling resources. It's interesting.

I would suggest the book if you like Appleseed but do look up the art to see if it is right for you.
