Description

Manga doesn't get any more &quotnoir&quot than this! Benkei is just another expatriate Japanese artist living in the Big Apple or so it appears. As these &quotdiabolical hard-boiled stories&quot show, surfaces aren't always what they seem. Flashbacks delve into sordid, secret past lives, and old scores, long festering, emerge without warning, asking to be settled. And Benkei's secret? Maybe it's just that he's the only artist in town who isn't dreaming of being a hitman-for-hire he is one. Each self-contained episode in this complete Benkei collection is a tightly plotted, beautifully rendered, and psychologically harrowing ride into the heart of urban darkness. A hard boiled tale of revenge, rendered in the tight-lipped, fine-line style of the estimable Jiro Taniguchi, one of the creators of Hotel Harborview. Haggis, anyone?
