RARA-AVIS: Japanese HB Comics

Mon, 13 Jul 1998 14:49:32 +0100 I read a translated manga series called Gunsmith Cats by Kenichi Sonada
that is hard boiled and tough. About a women bounty hunter/gunsmith
(gunsie) and a women explosive expert (bombsie)/ex-hooker. It takes place
in Chicago. It is very good.

Japanese manga have a lot of hardboiled protaganists and series. The
formentioned Sonada did a one off anime called "Riding Bean" about a tough
no non-sense driver. There was one graphic novel called "Hotel Haborview"
that is filled with short HB stories. These are more prosaic stories then
the previously mentioned stories dealing more with the Yakusa. I like these
graphic presentations of HB better then the "Sin City" stories. The "Sin
City" series is much more opaque.
