Sazan & Comet Girl (Omnibus) (Paperback)
Manga fans don't often get a complete epic story in one volume, and rarer still do we see manga printed in full, glorious watercolor. Sazan delivers both! This comic has something for everyone: whimsy, action, romance, and likable characters in a fun setting. It's shocking that this is Akase's first work, because it feels first and foremost like the Eighties anime film you never saw.— From Graham's picks
A critically acclaimed, full-color manga adventure through the boundless reaches of outer space! Sazan, a young man from Earth, works construction on other planets and has seen his share of galactic oddities. But when he meets Mina, a vivacious redhead who zooms into his life on a space scooter, he knows he’s run into someone special. Almost as suddenly as she arrived, Mina races out of Sazan’s life, yet Sazan is determined to find her again...no matter how far he must chase her across the galaxy.
