Take all that in, and you can decide if "Dorohedoro" is a comic for you. I am going to warn you that it isn't a comic for everyone. This is a weird, ultra-violent, dark and bloody that artist Q Hayashida has created, and unless your sensibilities are twisted enough you might just throw the book across the room. Me, I like it.
The story continues for Dorohedoro, Vol. 1 with Caimen and Nikaido out chopping up zombies. They are hoping to save up a hundred and eighty plates to buy a meat-grinder so Nikaido can make her delicious gyoza. Unfortunately, they run into a pair of masked sorcerers on the hunt and things get violent very fast. Caimen feels confident that the sorcerers magic can't affect him, but the sorcerer shows Caimen that a hammer works just the same on everyone. The encounter reveals a few secrets about Caimen and Nikaido. One is something Nikaido was hoping to keep secret, and one was something that Caimen didn't even know about himself.
The art in "Dorohedoro" is just as dark and grimy as the story. In the faces and bodies their seems to be some shades of Masumune Shiro, especially his Appleseed books. But just some shades. Everything here is pure Hayashida. She has her own look and way of drawing that I haven't seen in any other manga.
Festish masks and huge fighters crashing into each other. A suite made out of syringes. A man with a human heart-shaped mask. A lot that goes on here is so bizarre you just can't question it. When a waiter walks out with a fish for a head, you just have to think "Well, that's "Dorohedoror." "
