Battle Angel Alita Volumes 1-6 are currently available as part of the comiXology Originals line of exclusive digital content only available on comiXology and Kindle, and this week the next three volumes join the library. The titles are a part of comiXology Unlimited and there's more to come!
Screen Rant has the exclusive preview of Battle Angel Alita Volumes 7-9 by Yukito Kishiro that release on comiXology October 25, 2017. Below is a gallery of pages and covers, and information on each volume of the epic cyberpunk manga that began in 1990. Some of the volumes have been adapted into animated video and for many years James Cameron has held the rights to a live-action adaptation, but dove into Avatar and its many sequels first. Instead, Robert Rodriguez is directing with Cameron producing and the film releases next year so it's the perfect time to see the full collection on comiXology.
