In the first of three more gruesome delights starring Kuro and the gang, Kuro discovers that his ability to communicate with the dead extends to pieces of the dead. Hence his conversations with black-market organs lead the gang to uncover an illegal organ-transplant ring preying on Tokyo's homeless. The crew also takes on a group of murderously desperate computer geeks and solves the mystery of a slate of train-track suicides. Otsuka and Yamazaki's usual blood-and-guts approach hits the dark-comic marks as if it were a sinister Scooby Doo for grown-ups, with even the art moving effortlessly between light and dark extremes. And death is never disrespected. Must reading for those who enjoy ghoulish laughter. Coleman, Tina

The art is pretty decent AND gross at times, which I like. Warning, this is not for the squeamish! I guess that's why it's shrink wrapped.
First half of the book is a two-parter about which the jacket copy will tell you (and will tell you far too much, IMO; it's dangerously close to spoiler territory, if not over the line). Two one-shots afterwards, and I liked those better. In the first one, the gang get a case from a ghost with amnesia and try to figure out how he died by tracing the origin of a piece of graffiti on his front door, while the second have the gang trying to track down the owner of an ear Numata found inside a manga he bought at a used bookstore. Man, I need to find more interesting used bookstores... *** ½
