One of Knights of Sidonia’s chief strengths is that it doesn’t bog down the intrigue of its world with too much unnecessary, bloated dialogue…It’s definitely a solid pick-up for Vertical; there’s not really anything else in their catalog like it. Dig into the first volume and see if Nihei’s gorgeously depicted wreck of a sci-fi future doesn’t secure an immediately tight grip.” Otaku USA

“Knights of Sidonia
is off to a solid start with its first volume…All in all it’s a promising and entertaining offering and one that’s left me chomping at the bit for the next volume.” – Comic Book Resources

[Knights of Sidonia is] just great fun, written at a (slightly) slower pace than BIOMEGA, which allows for some character development and intriguing side-plot building.  The art is pretty much identical to BIOMEGA and there are definitely some amusing little nods to that work, including amongst other things, a talking bear. I will, obviously, be reading this as soon as it comes out.” —Page 45 (U.K.)
