Good New Horror Manga
Apr 22, 2008 reviewed by Obsessed
Being a big fan of horror anything, Dark Metro was a nice surprise. There are five one-shot stories centering around a central character (Who is NOT on the front cover weird). The set-up is very similar to Mail if you have read it.
The plot for each story is similar and yet different enough to keep you entertained. As the summary shows the central idea is that the subway at night is inhabited by the dead. The art is wonderful. In short, this is horror manga art. Wonderfully grotesque, violent and bloody (Veeery bloody). The other great aspect of this work is that the author does not rely upon panty shots when female characters are being chased. The focus is actually on the zombie-like creatures!
For a first volume it is a good start. The last one-shot in this series actually begins to touch on the main character and give us some background. I look forward to the second volume to see if the pace can be kept.
In short, it is a great new horror read. The horror art is fantastic. The writing is brief but carries the read along for the ride.
