Lots of cuss words and drugs. Not sure what is the hype about this comic.

I really don't read lots of comic books, but this was THE ABSOLUTE SHIT when I first read this series, I am now hooked, I never really gotten so hooked into a comic book series quite like this, this maybe my new 'Blue Exorcist' because I have something else to read while waiting for the new BLUE EXORCIST volumes to come out

Lots of points for the art on this one. Looks gritty, retro, and definitely tips the hat to Frank Miller's Sin City art as well. It's labeled as a comic about an assassin's school in the 1980s but there's a bit more going on here than that. There's a part of it there but we're dealing a lot with emotional motivations and other problems that these children on crime families and the like have to deal with and the fact that they are at a school to learn how to be assassins. Family profession isn't everything and all that. It'll be curious to see what befalls these kids next.
