In the words of Ted Nomura, the series creator, Tigers of Terra combines “the best features” of Japanese manga comics like Doctor Slump with the researched realism of American war comics from the 70s like Sergeant Rock. Set on a parallel Earth, known as Terra, Tigers of Terra centers around a war being fought between two militaristic factions primarily led and populated by women. One group, the warlike Amazons of the Viragonian Empire wish to completely eliminate males from Terra thereby extending their control of the planet. Members of the Earth Volunteer Group on the other hand wish to stop the Amazon’s planned genocide of the male species and bring peace to Terra. Basing much of the comic’s futuristic weaponry on real life military hardware, Tigers of Terra often includes detailed blueprints and specs students of armed forces history will appreciate.
