SILENT MÃ–BIUS – THE ULTIMATE SCI-FI MANGA RETURNS
UDON announces Silent MÃ¶bius: Complete Edition
Having spawned a 26-episode anime, and 2 feature films, the Silent MÃ¶bius series is considered by many as the pinnacle of sci-fi manga. UDON Entertainment is proud to announce the English release of the Silent MÃ¶bius: Complete Edition series, a new remastered edition of the manga packed with tons of bonus material. If you have never before read Silent MÃ¶bius, you canâ€™t call yourself a true manga reader.
Created by famed manga artist Kia Asamiya (Nadesico, Uncanny X-men, Batman: Child of Dreams, Star Wars Episode 1 Manga), Silent MÃ¶bius follows the AMP (Attacked Mystification Police). This all-female police force protects a futuristic Tokyo from invasion by the Lucifer Hawks – an extra-dimensional race of demons who come in a variety of terrifying forms.
Silent MÃ¶bius: Complete Edition features a new UDON translation, the restoration of the traditional right-to-left reading format, as well as new scans of every page taken directly from the original artwork. Each volume also includes a full color illustration gallery, extras like characters designs, data files, and interviews, and many color story pages from the series original serialization in Comic Dragon Magazine. UDON will also be releasing 3 full volumes of never before collected stories – the two-volume Silent MÃ¶bius Tales, and a special prequel Volume 0 that reveals much of the seriesâ€™ backstory.
â€œI feel very fortunate to have gotten the opportunity to publish this Complete Editionâ€, says Asamiya, â€œand it certainly gave me a chance to look back on everything. Whether you’ve read the series before, or are picking it up for the first time ever, I hope you will enjoy Silent MÃ¶bius.â€
The first volume of Silent MÃ¶bius: Complete Edition arrives August 2009, with new volumes to follow every few months.Â
