Praise for Captain Harlock: The Classic Collection Vol. 1
"...showing off a creator at the height of his powers." --Sean Gaffney, A Case Suitable For Treatment (Manga Bookshelf)
"There's a reason why [Leiji Matsumoto]'s the king of the space opera, and this extra-long volume does a good job showing us why." --Rebecca Silverman, Anime News Network
"Captain Harlock continues to inspire both readers and story creators throughout all of humanity, and this collection demonstrates many of the strengths that lie within both its setting and characters. If anything, the original series serves as a great reminder of what we should continue to do both for ourselves and the greater good: 'Under your flag, live free.'" --Boston Bastard Brigade
