Through the kind generosity of our reviewer, Thomas Zoth, who got these copies at a convention via Anime Network's Greg Wicker, we've got the first five volumes of the manga series EDENto give away to readers here! EDEN is one of the most underrated series out there that's not getting enough attention, at least not attention that tends to revolve around whether the series will see another volume released. With our new article up about the best of the best from Dark Horse and with this one in it, what better contest to run?
What It's About:
Eden is both a brilliant love song to the post-apocalyptic survival genre and the beginning of a deep exploration on man's role in the natural order. In the near future, a large portion of humanity is wiped out by a brutal, new virus that hardens the skin while dissolving internal organs. Those who aren't immune are either severely crippled or allowed to live with cybernetically enhanced bodies. Taking advantage of a world in chaos, a paramilitary force known as the Propater topples the United Nations and seeks world domination. Elijah, a young survivor searching for his mother, travels towards the Andes Mountains with an artificially intelligent combat robot. When he encounters a group of anti-Propater freedom fighters, a maelstrom of unique characters unfolds. Graphic, cyberpunk, and philosophical, Eden is a place where endearing heroes face a constant struggle for survival and violent surprises wait around every corner!
