Sentient by Jeff Lemire and Gabriel Walta is a science-fiction graphic novel that follows a ship in space. When a terrible assault leaves all of the children parentless, it’s up to the on-board AI, Valerie, to raise these kids and help them to survive for as long as possible. I read the trade paperback version, which collects all issues, #1-6.
As I was pondering some of my favourite seinen serials one evening, I began to contemplate my love of books and how similar my taste in them are to manga. Then I started thinking about manga editions of my favourite novels. Suffice to say, I became thoroughly enthused, so much so that I tossed together a list of books that I feel would make badass seinen adaptations!
