Japanese Scarface is a nasty grappler


A spin off from the popular Baki The Grappler manga, the Hong Kong Chinese edition of Scarface hit the streets last month and I picked up a copy from a local newsstand. Baki was known for its over-the-top fights and Scarface delivers the same kind of kicks.
I must admit that I didn’t really like the Baki manga – the artwork didn’t really appeal to me and there are so many fight comics out in the market, that I never really felt the need to pursue it. I did go through the first twenty odd episodes of the TV series, which I found entertaining enough. But back to Scarface. This manga offers nothing particularly special and in this first volume, there aren’t even very many elaborate action scenes.
Verdict : only for hard-core fans of Baki.
