Last Man: (#4)
This French manga just continues to hold its excellent appeal. Continuing on this whole volume centers on Richard, Marianne and Adrian being caught in Paxtown where they all are competing in a live ultimate fighting-type tag team tournament under duress. Paxton is a mega-opolis society with undertones of Judge Dredd and Hunger Games and Richard remains as elusively mysterious as ever as more layers are added to the plot. Other characters from Marianne's homeland arrive and new characters are introduced keeping the story fresh and familiar at the same time while ending on a small cliffhanger to keep us eagerly awaiting the next volume. I love everything about this series, the plot, the characters and the art.
