Dr. Ido’s Journal

As Alita: Battle Angel opens in cinemas worldwide, Titan Book’s latest release, Dr. Ido’s Journal, gives fans the chance to delve further into the fantastical world brought to life in the film.

Based on the classic manga series by Yukito Kishiro, Dr. Dyson Ido, brings the cyborg Alita back to life after finding her remains in a scrapyard. 

From visionary filmmakers James Cameron (Avatar) and Robert Rodriguez (Sin City), comes Alita: Battle Angel, an epic adventure of hope and empowerment. When Alita (Rosa Salazar) awakens with no memory of who she is in a future world she does not recognise, she is taken in by Ido (Christoph Waltz), a compassionate doctor who realises that somewhere in this abandoned cyborg shell is the heart and soul of a young woman with an extraordinary past. As Alita learns to navigate her new life and the treacherous streets of Iron City, Ido tries to shield her from her mysterious history while her street-smart new friend Hugo (Keean Johnson) offers instead to help trigger her memories. But it is only when the deadly and corrupt forces that run the city come after Alita that she discovers a clue to her past – she has unique fighting abilities that those in power will stop at nothing to control. If she can stay out of their grasp, she could be the key to saving her friends, her family and the world she’s grown to love. 

Dr. Ido’s Journal by Nick Aires allows readers to experience the world of Alita through the eyes of her adopted father, cybersurgeon and Hunter-Warrior Dr. Dyson Ido with a fully-illustrated journal.

Nick Aires is the pen-name of Nick Andreychuk, a seasoned fiction and non-fiction writer , author of Arrow: Heroes and Villains and Arrow: Oliver Queen’s Dossier, (as Nicholas Knight) The Essential Supernatural, and 7 volumes of The Official Supernatural Companion.

Alita Battle Angel, Dr. Ido’s Journal, is available now, priced £19.99.
