4.0 out of 5 stars Doing the job, September 14, 2010
This review is from: Dogs: Bullets & Carnage, Vol. 4 (Paperback)
If you have made it this far in Miwa Shirow's "Dogs: Bullets and Carnage" series then you know what to expect; over-the-top, stylized violence with clean, kinetic art and a somewhat loose story line.

Volume 4 (although actually it is volume 5, as the series starts out with Dogs: Prelude, Vol. 0) starts with a literal train wreck, from which a single katana is recovered by Mihai Mihailov, who brings it to Granny Liza. Badou Nails is also wrapped up with Granny Liza, who has a special job she wants him to do as an information broker. The hunt for information takes Badou down some unexpected roads, and introduces him to someone from his past he has been dying to meet. Meanwhile, Bishop and Heine are having their own business, as Heine learns some clues about his past and his special collar.

There is some story development here, and the plot keeps moving along, but really, "Dogs: Bullets and Carnage" is all about the art. Miwa continues to deliver in signature style, with almost background-less clean white pages and some serious line work. The characters designs are lithe and inhuman, but just somehow come off looking cool. Miwa also has a way with screen tone that is unique and adds to the feel of the book.

The series in general could do with a more cohesive and clear story, but that isn't really the point. This is the joy of slick, chaotic ultra-violence done really well. And there is nothing wrong with that.

5.0 out of 5 stars It comes with a warning for a reason, January 5, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Dogs: Bullets & Carnage, Vol. 4 (Paperback)
This a review for persons who may not be familiar with this series. In my opinion this series should not be read by anyone who is not in at least high school. If it were a movie it would be rated R. Parents read the title it is an excellent description of each volume in this series.
