I once had high hopes for this book but the superior manga offerings of rival Viz displaced this from my reading list.

This was a title that was ready to take off. It was a Western, a vampire story and it had a movie starring Paul Bettany coming to theatres. I wonder where it all fell apart for me.

Reviewing my reads from years past, I felt that I've outgrown this title. Thus, it is among the first to join my first ever Culling, in the hopes to free up valuable shelf space for more important and

Min-woo Hyung, Priest, vol. 5: Ballad of a Fallen Angel (Tokyopop, 2003)

The second part of the diary of Ivan Isaacs storyline has Temozarela walking the earth, and we get the beginning of the story of his creation of Belial as he faces off with a fanatical Inquisition priest. A good deal of tension in this volume. I wasn't expecting this storyline to hold up nearly as well as it does. ***

Way interesting. I'm not giving anything away here. This volume has an interesting involvement with the story of Satan falling from Heaven, but it's from his perspective. It also shows what a manipulative and deceiver he is, tricking people into letting him into their bodies and ruining their lives. Very interesting indeed.
