Description

The official graphic novel adaptation of the original novel that inspired the sci-fi blockbuster film starring Tom Cruise: All You Need Is Kill.

When the alien Mimics invade, soldier Keiji Kiriya is killed, easily, on the battlefield. But he wakes up the previous morning as if nothing happened and must fight the battle again...and again...and again. Teamed up with the mysterious female fighter known as the Full Metal Bitch, Keiji must figure out how to stop the cycle - and what role his new and deadly ally plays in the fight to save Earth.

Author Nick Mamatas (Bullettime, Love Is the Law) and artist Lee Ferguson (Miranda Mercury, Green Arrow/Black Canary) give Hiroshi Sakurazaka's mind-bending alien invasion tale a bold new look in the official comic adaption of the original novel.

About the Author

Hiroshi Sakurazaka was born in Tokyo in 1970. After a career in information technology, he published his first novel, Modern Magic Made Simple (Yoku wakaru gendai mahou), in 2003 with Super Dash Bunko, a popular young adult light novel imprint. There are now seven volumes in the series, and it was adapted as a manga in 2008 and as a television anime series in 2009. Sakurazaka published All You Need Is Kill with Super Dash Bunko in 2004 and with it earned his first Seiun Award nomination for best of the year honors in Japanese science fiction. His 2004 short story Saitama Chainsaw Massacre won the 16th SF Magazine Reader's Award.

In 2009, All You Need Is Kill was the launch title for Haikasoru, a unique imprint dedicated to publishing the most compelling contemporary Japanese science fiction and fantasy for English-speaking audiences. New York Times best-selling author John Scalzi declared All You Need Is Kill to be a novel that reads fast, kicks ass, and keeps on coming, and it has proven to be one of Haikasoru's most popular titles. Sakurazaka's other novels include Characters (cowritten with Hiroki Azuma) and Slum Online, which was published in English by Haikasoru in 2010.

In 2010, Sakurazaka started an experimental digital magazine, AiR, with Junji Hotta. He remains one of Japan's most energetic writers of both light novels and adult science fiction.

NICK MAMATAS is the author of several novels, including The Damned Highway (with Brian Keene) and Bullettime. His short fiction has appeared in Asimov's Science Fiction, Tor.com, Weird Tales, and many other venues. He's written comics for Media Blasters and the Squid Works! collective. He has been nominated for the Hugo, World Fantasy, Bram Stoker, and Shirley Jackson awards.

LEE FERGUSON has worked in comics since 2001, when he broke in at Marvel on the 9/11 Heroes tribute book, followed by work on the company's X-Men titles. Since then, he's worked at DC, IDW, and Dynamite, while also putting out Freak, his creator-owned project from Image Comics. His newest book is The Many Adventures of Miranda Mercury, co-created with Brandon Thomas and published through Archaia Comics. In 2012, Miranda Mercury was on YALSA's best graphic novels for teens list and nominated for four Glyph Awards, including Best Artist.
