Not that I'm into derailed train fetish or anything like that. But when a story starts from the aftermath of an incident so dire, you know you're in for some serious sh*t. This kind of story does not waste time. It does not spend 30 initial pages trying to slowly usher you into the story.
Imagine being the only sole survivor. Alone in the dark. And everybody's dead.
Dragon Head is about fear itself & about overcoming it. That's why the manga covers look like this.
Holy crap! I think I crapped again.
But soon, our little hero begins to find other survivors like him, although few.
And this one seems to speak in Italian. Wierd.
Look at that. Great Art. Great, great, almighty art.
