Regardless of time and place, space has always been a primary subject of mankind's awe and fascination. Steadfast in discovering the truth behind their own existence, humans have continued to venture out far into the unknown, ready to confront any hurdle that comes along the way. Although the path ahead is one full of uncertainties, as long as humanity remains persistent in their endeavors, they may ultimately learn to understand each other and come closer to unraveling the intriguing mysteries of the universe.

2001 Nights is a nice anthology of deep-space exploration stories delivered in a western style of comic art. The quality reminds you of the silver age of comics, but there is great detail in both expression and scenary.

The art of this manga isn't my cup of tea.

The stories are interesting enough. Although each chapter is a unique story, there is a conection with them all. Some characters and stories are developed in other chapters. There is also a sense of progression. As the story progresses, we can see the evolution of humanity in space.
