Read full description of the books:
100% swerves between the experimental and the artist (still) trying to find his style. With obvious resemblances to Heavy Liquid, from the predecessor we can see significant improvements that are continually built upon in the successor. This story is far more coherent and there is much (more) ado about the characters.
Harsh peltings of pencil-work fiercely paint a story that is engaging as it is dazzling. Harsh depictions of an equally uncaring city revel in a density that is as turgid as it is uncompromising. It is within this setting that multiple threads of love and the personal dreams/ambitions they entail play out. This urban theatre plays host to numerous denizens en media res.
Although not a manga fan, per se, I did really enjoy the explicit Japanese influences in the comic book. From stern illustrations of characters to really cool fight sequences the enormous contributions of Japanese culture/art on the world is there. In particular, the Boxer (Haituous) reminded me a lot of Jet from Cowboy Bebop. How cool!
However, as much as I did thoroughly revel in the Eastern influence(s), the thing I really like about Paul Pope's works (at least the ones of read) is that he serves as writer and illustrator. Without another cook (potentially spoiling the pot) I really feel like we get a much clearer vision of what the originator really wanted.
In either case flaws and all, I really enjoyed 100% and I am sure that you will too.
