Now, we’re getting somewhere.
Yorick & Crew arrive in Tokyo. They’re being stalked by Toyota, a ninja assassin. They go to confront Dr. Mann’s mother, a Japanese scientist.
There’s a lot of action in this volume, and that makes it a lot of fun. The depiction of Japan is a little stereotypical, though, with the ladies all fawning over a Japanese android man who’s programmed to tell them things like, “you look beautiful when you cry.”
There are also some important revelations in this volume, and Vaughan does a great job of maximizing the drama.
This volume is a fun, gripping read, and gets the series back on track.
