As expected, this artbook is a feast to the eyes.
However, the really amazing thing of this book, are these 4 pages full of text in the middle, dealing with quantum physics, computation, philosophy of mind, technology, theology, sci-fi classics and inspirations, etc...
Nihei's goes in depth explaining the megastructure/netsphere world of Blame! and NOiSE... And it's unbelievable! It adds so much in order to fully understand his complex world building, cryptic character development and lots of deta...more
How to describe this book... can't use my usual "so pretty" as Nihei's art isn't exactly that

It has gorgeous pages of Blame! and NOiSE art, megastructure/architecture illustrations followed by a few pages of Wolverine. Yes, Wolverine! Its like someone had a meeting, "hmm.. all this cyber-punk art is great, but how can we really get Anna's attention. Oh yeah, she loves that crazy Marvel chara, throw that in!"
Glénat, who have published most of Tsutomu Nihei's mangas in French, had decided to treat us with this. A little gift for the fans. Nihei's drawings are beautiful as usual, but this time they're in full color. And Glénat has published it in full glazed paper so it's luscious.
Dessins magnifiquement "torturés" mais l'ouvrage n'a pas grand intérêt pour ceux qui ne connaissent pas le manga d'origine....
Excellent artbook by one of my favorite artists. Interesting to see Nihei's depiction of an EVA too
