Naoki Urasawa's Monster (manga, vol. 10) translated by Sumiko Katsura

Naoki Urasawa's Monster, Volume 10: Picnic - Naoki Urasawa, 浦沢 直樹, Sumiko Katsura

Nina kills four people in this volume, which seems very...odd. It doesn't fit what we've seen of her up to this point. One she kills with a gun, and the other three she kills with poisoned candy, like her brother. Very bewildering. Have the events of the previous volumes broken her, and is she now out for revenge, too?

(show spoiler)


The story is heating up, but slowly. There's a smiling ex-spy and some torture (pulling out fingernails). The 511 Kinderheim stuff is obviously connected to the main story, but Grimmer is new.

I'm dying to know what's on that tape. What did young Johan say about his past?
