Praise For To Terra...Volume 2

"To Terra... is an amazing piece of comic art, and no dedicated manga reader should pass it up." - Newtype USA

" An outstanding addition to the pantheon of great manga." -

"Either way this is sweet old skool sci-fi goodness (think Leiji Matsumoto) wrapped in Ooizumi Salon art with a flair for Ishinomori costume designs... Yeah this is a manga-wotaku's dream." - MangaCast

“The art stands out as unique as it did back 30 years ago. It feels both retro and progressive. Takemiya’s settings and organic spaceships are simply awing to look at in each page.” –About Heroes

“To Terra is an engrossing ride through the stars… “ —Manga Maniac Café
