Description
A partnership between Spacedog Entertainment and TokyoPop, comes a manga called eV.

From TokyoPop (based on volume 1):

Twenty minutes from now, visitors from a far-off world will fall into Earth's orbit and issue a most unexpected request... These "Emissaries" invite a single human being to be selected as a representative for all of Earth in an intergalactic parliament. Mankind is given five years in which to prepare this volunteer for the rigors of space travel and the intricacies of alien diplomacy. Scientist Dr. Richard Wymond devises the ZETTA serum—a nano-biological cocktail that will augment its recipient with nearly superhuman abilities. But when Wymond's daughter Evie is mortally injured in a freak accident, he makes a fateful decision, and rather than let her die, injects Evie with the ZETTA serum. Now the fate of the world rests upon the shoulders of one 17-year-old girl. How will Evie cope with this awesome responsibility? Will she survive the strange political intrigues of the parliament? And more importantly, are the Emissaries' intentions as honorable as they have led us to believe...?

I decided to fill in the previously blank 'Status in Country of Origin' field with "1 Volume (Complete)" because although the spine is branded with a '1' and possible future volumes were proposed, the first volume is a complete story and any further volumes would have been sequels. Also, Volume 1 came out in 2008 and there has been no indication since then of any more eV coming out, especially in the wake of Tokyopop's demise. (Although I felt "1 Volume (Dropped)" would leave the wrong impression since it IS a self contained story.)

As for the story itself, the surprising ending is sure to delight those with a dark sense of humor. The entire experience is like Marvel Comics meets Star Wars, and fans of either should be left satisfied. The female lead (who is NOT over-sexualized) is fun and this book can definitely be appreciated by either gender.
