Pulp graphic novel? There is no pulp with lines like: After I lost my sight in Nam, I can finally see how the world really works.

I like Taniguchi-san's style. Very detail and delicate. The stories are definitely my cups of tea, but I they are definitely not for mainstream reader. I was lucky to find a copy.
Not really my kind of story, though it wasn't bad. I'll probably keep it simply because the art was drawn by Jiro Taniguchi.
A manga about a hitman who exacts other people's revenge. Gritty but a bit slow-paced, and reminds me of film noir.
