Biomega stands out thanks to its dark gritty artwork by Nihei. The heavily penned lines convey a great sense of action and motion in nearly every panel. Whether Zoichi is riding his bike, dropping a room full of enemies before his gun's barrel cools, or launching a laser at an ICB missile, the look of this book is really dynamic. Sometimes the style overtakes the details and there's just too much going on, but that flaw is easy to overlook.
The first volume of Biomega is quite frankly over before you know it. There's sparse dialogue and its story is largely told by the action that fills every page. Still, the manga manages to bring together an interesting sci-fi zombie tale, entertaining characters, and loads of style. It leaves you wanting the second volume, which is ultimately what a good manga should hope to achieve. Recommended.
