Item description for To Terra...Volume 2 by Keiko Takemiya & Deborah Boehm...

The Mu, a group of outcast humans with extrasensory powers, have tried to broker peace with the human race, but the humans' fears of telepathy and the Mu's fears of human social engineering have frustrated all hopes of peaceful coexistence. Based on a Japanese animated series. Media tie-in.

Publishers Description
Jomy Marcus Shin has led the telepathic Mu race into hiding on Naska, a planet abandoned long before by human colonists. Naska provides a temporary home, but it is no substitute for Terra. The first Mu children in hundreds of years to be conceived naturally are born there, giving the Mu the promise of a bright future. Their fragile peace, however, may soon be shattered...
"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

Reviews - What do customers think about To Terra...Volume 2?

Awesome second part  Aug 18, 2007
Leadership is something that people often underestimate. Deciding the fate for an entire race is the focus of this volume. What will the Mu do? Fight? Run? Will they even survive? For a while there it's hard to tell. But there's a third and final volume on the you can only imagine they hang in there for one more installment. But the opposition is very strong and they realize this. Well. that's basically the jist of the second volume. A set up for a furious and possibly futile battle in the third installment. This volume is where the pace really picks up and the action starts happening. It's so epic and the scope is so grand. If you held on through the first volume and picked this up you will find yourself incapable of NOT hunting down the third volume. I've only read 2 books of Miss Takemiya and i can't wait to read more of her work.
