Appleseed Volume 1: The Promethean Challenge is a good read. The characters are likeable and the artwork is detailed and appealing, although a little confusing during the more action-oriented situations. I ordered this with Volume 2: Prometheus Unbound, and although they surprisingly weren't in any plastic wrapping in the box they came in, they still arrived in fantastic condition looking better than some new books I see on the shelves of my local bookstore.
Again, a good read. My only complaint is that sometimes the artwork can get a little confusing during the battle scenes. Had to re-read a couple times to tell who was who.
**** out of *****

After a nuclear war a scientific elite (of cyborgs/androids in this one) begin the process of recreating the world and society. Unlike most fictions this does not include the enslavement or genocide of humanity. They welcome mankind with open arms and find a place for him in their society at great social cost and inviting the risk of danger in their gates.
The two main characters are a pair of hardened mercenaries/soldiers who are amazed at the generosity offered to them by this new utopian society and eagerly become cops to help them keep their peace. They fight terrorists who are mostly humans born inside this new civilization but have turned disillusioned with it either from boredom through luxury or paranoia at not having a direct say in the benevolent government of the androids. In short, paradise is threatened from within and these two become the enforcers because they've lived through mankind mostly killing himself and can't understand why people who live in such luxury and security they thought they'd never see again can try to destroy it and hurt innocents in the process.
It's a longer work, and less well reviewed than his other stuff. I think it was his most thoughtful work.
