Queen Emeraldas

The sci-fi classic from the creator of Space Battleship Yamato (Star Blazers), Galaxy Express 999, and Captain Harlock in English for the first time! Emeraldas, known throughout the galaxy as the Pirate Queen, travels through space on her heavily armed ship, searching for a secret. Hiroshi Umino is a young boy who escaped the bounds of Earth only by building his own spaceship. He crashes on Mars, where he encounters Emeraldas, who sees a little of herself in the reckless young man. This is the first new English translation of a work by sci-fi legend Leiji Matsumoto since 2003.
