    Image has been at its very best over the past year and this is just another very cool title from the publisher. I would say this is the only cool Vampire story going on right now, with the exception of maybe American Vampire which is kind of cool. This issue begins with the main character recovering in the hospital when the vampires attack and abduct Davis, still wounded she goes to their hideout and kicks total ass with the assist by Oshima. That about covers the whole issue but that is totally okay because it was action packed and very violent, which I really like! As I have said before I always enjoy a beautiful female character who can kick ass. This book has a really simple enjoyable story with gorgeous colorful art. This creative team has put out a wonderful series that makes me want to read the next issue, so all I have to say is keep it up! Read Full Review

    Shinku #5 is not really a good jumping on point, per se, but if you dig it, I say go back and check out the previous issues. But if the showdown between Shinku and a ton of vampire goons and Asano doesn't sell it for you, you have my sympathy. I think Shinku is a book that comes along that mixes genres together to create something shiny and new. Read Full Review
