Naoki Urasawa's Monster, Volume 7: Richard - Naoki Urasawa, 浦沢 直樹, Masataka Kakiya

I'm planning on writing very brief reviews after my vacation, and I haven't felt like writing too many status updates. However, this volume is just too good. It gives me chills. Now we learn how all the murders fit together, even though it's still not clear what Johan's ultimate goal is.


I need to read more of Urasawa's stuff. It's a relief to read a long manga series in which all the parts start coming together like this.
