Urasawa (Monster) and his collaborators blend globe-trotting adventure, family drama, and classic noir into one irresistible volume. Taichi Hiraga Keaton travels the world as a freelance insurance investigator in the employ of the world’s most elite firms. Though the exotic locales and murder mysteries endemic to this profession are entertaining enough on their own, Keaton’s background as an archaeology lecturer and former member of the British Special Air Service is what takes the comic from good to great. Keaton is as charming skinning a muskrat in the Taklamakan Desert as he is being teased by his young daughter, as dashing with a hastily crafted slingshot as he is comforting a lonely young career woman. His knowledge of survival skills is especially entertaining—some of the volume’s best sequences are simple depictions of Keaton assessing bedframes and local architecture for possible weapons. Urasawa has long been regarded as a master storyteller across a variety of genres, and this volume is a sterling addition to his already impressive body of work. (Dec.)
