Viz Media will be bringing the thrills and chills of Tsotomi Nihei’s sci-fi horror manga Abara next month, in a single-volume hardcover. Nihei’s track record includes the best-selling Biomega, the Harvey Award-nominated BLAME!, and Knights of Sidonia. Now he’s turning his talent to dystopian stories.
A vast city lies under the shadow of colossal, ancient tombs, the identity of their builders lost to time. In the streets of the city something is preying on the inhabitants, something that moves faster than the human eye can see and leaves unimaginable horror in its wake. Tsutomu Nihei’s dazzling, harrowing dystopian thriller is presented here in a single-volume hardcover edition featuring full-color pages and foldout illustrations. The volume also includes the early short story, “Digimortal.“
“Abara: Complete Deluxe Edition is a collectors’ edition showcasing one of the most visually striking of Tsutomu Nihei’s impressive body of works to date,” says Leyla Aker, Executive Vice President & Publisher at Viz. “Featuring color pages, fold-out illustrations, high-quality paper, and more, this hardcover volume will delight horror and action fans with the grotesque and fantastic beauty of the world Nihei has created.”
