  1. A fantastic conclusion to a great 4 issue series! Wow it sounds like this book really amped up the action and suspense in the final chapter. I love the "Live by the Yakuza, Die by the Yakuza" phrase and the shocking ending. Now I know I really need to track this series down, it has now jumped to the top of my search list for Cons.

    I also totally agree with your sentiments about the need for a strong conclusion for enjoyable story. Ideally I want a strong journey & destination, but a strong conclusion can do wonders for saving a story that meanders during the journey part of the story. But a weak conclusion ruins the story for me.

    Strong Chapters 1, 3, and 4 more than make up for a slower chapter 2, giving this series a very big win!

    1. This was my first time reading this series, and I thoroughly enjoyed it. I hope you find it, and of course I hope you find it at a good price!

      Thanks for the thoughts on endings, as well.
