Page 45 Review by Jonathan

It just gets better and better!!! The plot well and truly thickens with volume two as we begin to get hints of who might have the most to gain from the demise of the advanced robots, and Atom decides the situation is serious enough to launch his own personal investigation alongside Gesicht. The other advanced robots are warned to take precautions for their safety, but it seems the killer has now broadened his scope to include humans involved with advanced robotic development as well. A joy to read as Urasawa starts to really up the ante and also finds time to take a not-so-subtle swipe at the current global order. Tezuka who occasionally used the American government or military as bad guys in his works such as MW (although sensibilities at the time meant he had to refer to them as Nation X) would definitely have approved of Urasawa's political satirising. I'm looking forward to volume three already.
