As the favorite for a mafia boss who is also his childhood friend things seem fairly sweet for Jeong. But things may be changing for him and the mafia and it's not clear what he status might be if he lose his boss's favor.
In this first installment, I learned why Jeong is known as the Golden Boy and how he and The Devil initially met. Exquisitely composed illustrations show Jeong as a young orphaned child, herded with other orphans to the ghetto lair of the gang, where apparently, the children are put to work to earn their keep.
The layout of the pages stays true to Japanese manga styling, reading right to left from top to bottom. Yuramei’s drawings possess a delicate sensitivity that adds to the fragility of the emotion contained within the story and the page composition is quite strong. Dynamic cells are intersected with smaller inset images that effectively highlight impactful moments of the tale. The visuals alone communicate the story very impressively, but Katsura’s reserved prose adds just the right touch to the manga revealing the "voice" of the characters without overriding the lucid and compelling illustrations.
In addition to learning of Jeong’s traumatic childhood, I was also introduced to a number of gang members and its leader, who doesn’t seem to be on the best of terms with his second in command, The Devil. There are hints of amorous affection among the gang members, and Jeong seems to be ruthless, promiscuous, and a bit bloodthirsty…as any young assassin who has managed to make it to adulthood in this gang would be.
I encourage everyone to check out this debut effort by two authors whose work on their 'Big Deal' series, still has me rereading passages from all four books to quench my thirst for the crafty sexaholic of that series. Ye-ah, I can never get enough Judas Macgregor, but I daresay I’ll be pining for Jeong before too long.
Thank you, Yuramei and Katsura, for this lovely new manga full of tough talkers and tender moments. “Hip, Hip, Hooray”
The price may seem a bit much for such a short number of pages, but it's not unexpected for a doujinshi. The binding is tight and feels durable, and the artwork is lovely; the great attention to detail really shows how much time and care the artist put into this work. Really the only thing that was a negative for me was that the body proportions were sometimes off, mostly their heads seemed a little large, but the eye-pleasing characters helped make up for that.
This title is definitely one I recommend as it fantastically gets us ready for what I'm sure will be a great series. Though short, we're given a lot of information so we're left feeling satisfied but earnestly waiting for more. I'm looking forward to the next chapter, and in the meantime will be checking out other titles from this duo.
