Publisher's Weekly Review

A Western set on a desert planet, this series begins two years after the finale of the original Trigun and chronicles the return of retired super-gunslinger with a heart of gold Vash the Stampede. Vash?s skills are so destructive that he is officially classified as a natural disaster, and once his return is made public, all manner of ordnance-wielding scum come out in an effort to claim the obscenely high bounty on his head. With a priest who carries a human-sized crucifix/machine gun, Vash makes his way from one bullet-riddled conflict to another, each exploit marked with humor. The well-drawn, though occasionally confusing, art manages to strike a delicate balance between the look needed for the Sergio Leone-esque spaghetti-Western-in-space feel and the script?s tongue-in-cheek tone. The story assumes readers are familiar with the original series. That?s not necessarily a bad thing though, since readers are thrown headlong into a unique science fiction environment and left to discover the ins and outs of its workings for themselves. It?s one of the things that make this first volume worth a look for those seeking a bit of light, time-killing manga reading. (June) Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.

School Library Journal Review

Adult/High School-Vash the Stampede has been missing for two years, and a pseudo-Vash is terrorizing a town with his gang. At the same time, Wolfwood tracks down Vash to tell him that every man, woman, and child is missing from another village and the only clue is the name Knives scrawled across a monument. After they defeat the impostor, Vash and Wolfwood head out to track down Knives. Nightow has tightened up his storytelling here, and his artwork is fluid, with fine lines and lots of detail. The tale is a blend of humor and action, with a bit of intrigue involving Vash and Knives's past.-Susan Salpini, TASIS-The American School in England (c) Copyright 2010.
