Biomega is a comic that comes so close to doing interesting things with science fiction zombies. It walks right up to the line of interesting and then stops. But the art is stunning and that's why I keep reading it, hoping against hope that something will happen while I flip through it as if it wast a glorified art book.

This manga is the usual Nihei stuff, some Killy-like badass character is on a mission and kills monsters along the way. You can expect action, violence, blood, decapitations, etc. The drawings are beautiful as usual. The whole world seems to be set in the same as Blame but before Blame and Noise. Nihei introduces interesting characters, new monsters and a new storyline. But, and there is a big but, the manga would have been better if it would have been a book or two longer. The manga is good up ...more

The first volume in this series gave me incredibly high hopes. It presented a dark futuristic world through stunning panels and very little text. The second volume introduced many of the players in this world, including the warring corporations now in charge (at least in Japan). I was willing to give a little there, since I was interested to know some of the background. However, the third volume moves from character to character and through plot developments with such reckless abandon that I oft ...more

I loved Blame although I could barely follow the plot. It may have had something to do with how compelling I found the brute willpower of the protagonist. Biomega's main character is similarly single-minded, but less interesting perhaps because the POV is now divided between him, another synthetic human like him, and the bad guys. The action is still amazing to look at, but because the story is just as scattered as in Blame, and quite fast-paced, I often wondered why the action was happening. Ho ...more

I would give this four stars except I'm three books in and I have absolutely no idea what's happening. There's a bear that rides around on a motorcycle and guns and an impressive amount of motion lines. But man can this dude draw.

There's so many acronyms and so little dialogue and so many characters that look and act alike that it's almost impossible to understand what's going on and who we're supposed to care about--but that doesn't mean that it's not pretty.

The first chapter was terribly confusing, but after that, things cleared up a bit. The plot thickens and becomes more interesting. Of course, to be honest, I don't read his work for the story, I just love the artwork.

This series is a confusing, but hard to put down, mostly because of how pretty it is.
That being said, I would whole heartedly recommend this to people who can appreciate a descent story and character development if the art is good enough. Also, you have to like sci-fi horror...

Not for the young or faint of heart, but certainly for adults who crave alternative literature to consume. 100% A+ excellent manga if you like deep, dark, violent, and mysterious....and of course the plot/story is way cool. If you enjoy adult manga, this is about as good as it gets.

That was a bit of a hot mess. The story got a little bit out of control, too many things going on, but the big gun came out again....

Seriously bizarre series but I am liking it. Dark and twisted and generally just crazy pulp. I like the assassin girl but I doubt that's a surprise to anyone.
