Battle Angel Alita Vol. 05 SC

BATTLE ANGEL ALITA VOL. 5: ANGEL OF REDEMPTION SC - B&W. (Yukito Kishiro) This sophisticated, complex science fiction tale by master writer and artist Yukito Kishiro is full of action, black humor, and bizarre philosophical, historical, and cultural references. The heroine, Alita, is a powerful cyborg with a soft heart and a mysterious past. Her second lease on life isn’t easy: her heart is broken, she gains and loses friends to the cruel world of the Scrapyard far below the Utopian city of Tiphares, and she serves many masters in her quest to protect the innocent and create a new life for herself. A cross between Star Trek and Blade Runner, this series constantly challenges the reader’s definition of what it means to be human. Mad scientist Desty Nova resurrects the brain of Zapan–the Hunter-Warrior whose pride Alita has injured one too many times, and grafts it with a deadly Berserker body. Now, nothing can stop Zapan from exacting his revenge on Alita and all the Scrapyard inhabitants. Will Alita sacrifice herself to save her friends and other innocents?
