One of the best comics series by one of Japan's best comics authors. The cover's description of Urasawa as "Japan's master of suspense" is far from an empty statement. Any comics fan that has nor read this series or anyone that questions the artistic or storytelling ability of comics would do well to dive into Mosnter.

This well-drawn, well-written manga series (this book is 1 of 18) is about a brilliant neurosurgeon, Kenzo Tenma, and how he gets entangled in serial murder case. He eventually realizes that he might be the only one who can solve the mystery and stop the killer!

A brilliant manga-noir, well written and illustrated. HIghly recommended.
