I've been reading this as a online comic for some time now. It has a very compelling story and interesting characters. As an online comic I had one major gripe and that was how slow the story was told from page to page. As a collected graphic novel I suspect this problem will not exist, except perhaps from volume to volume, which would be another testament to how engaging the story is.

For the purposes of a synopsis, Tune: Vanishing Point collects the first eleven chapters of the graphic novel Tune, which stars Andy, a would-be graphic artists who finds his life going nowhere and doesn't have the courage to ask out the girl he is crushing on, Yumi.

However when his parents force him to go interview for a job, he is given an amazing opportunity. To become an effective ambassador of the human race to a trans-dimensional alien species, or to put it more realistically to be an exhibit in their zoo. For Andy, however, this is an ideal solution to his problems. Get away from his life for a year, get paid in untold riches, have time to work on his art, and maybe convince Yumi to go along with him!

And that's when everything starts to go wrong.
