I just sort of took a shot at the Dragon Hunter series, from manga import gods TOKYOPOP, and was left with mild feelings after the first three installments. In this volume, however, Hong Seock Seo really finds his stride, and his work has improved by leaps and bounds. This volume is definitely a page-turner; you’ll find yourself inevitably incapable of stopping to take a break. Action, intrigue, mayhem, and adventure ensues in this part of the ongoing tale of dragon hunter Seur-Chong and his crew. I’d suggest this series to both avid manga readers, and rookies alike. The artwork isn’t necessarily gold; but the fast pace holds your interest sufficiently.
Overall Grade: A-
