Waezi2 Halloween reading part 11.

Well, sitting on the streets with a sign is boring... Here are some other recommendations.
I am the first to admit that I am a sucker for romantic stories. So when I heard about The Crow, I just HAD to read it. And let me tell you; it's not a tale for anyone with a week stomach.
When we die, our spirit travels to the afterlife, carried by a crow. But sometimes, that crow let the soul return to the body before it goes on to the afterlife, so the wrongs of the soul can be righted.
Eric is such a soul. He now gets the opportunity to make the butchers of his fiance and himself pay for their crimes.
You may think this is just another superhero story. You could not be more wrong. There is nothing heroic about what Eric does. This is a case of unfinished business, so Eric can go on with peace. Blaine payback, simple as that. A dark story as only a noir comic can tell it.
Science is dangerous. So the Elric brothers must learn the hard way.
After loosing their mother to sickness, Alphonse and Edward Elric decides to master the science of alchemy in order to bringing her back to life. But, like Icarus, they learn how dangerous it is to play God, and pay a huge price.
I think it's needless to say that this manga, sadly, goes a little Dragon Ball in the end, but its actually a great tale about the horrors of science, and two young men trying to restore their humanity. There is plenty of gore in this horror-tale of science, so be prepared.
But i'ts also a lot of fun, too:) Its a manga after all.

I will be back with more recommendations as fast as possible, but I have to visit the big library at Copenhagen first.
See ya.
