Green Blood chapter 28
We can thank Music Otaku for this gem. As it appeared to be dropped, and given what a huge fan I am of it, we decided to bring more Green Blood to fans who love the story, even if we're limited to the magazine raws, but if anyone wants to help with the volume raws, we are more than happy to work alongside anyone for such a great manga.
Green Blood is set in 1800s America, starting in Five Points New York, and moving out to the western frontier with all the usual tropes: vengeance, gangs, corrupt land owners, gunslingers, assassins...the works. It's written and drawn by Kakizaki Masasumi who is an artist on par with Inoue, Samura, Itoh and Ikegamin in my eyes, and who blends the tropes together into a compelling story of brotherhood, honor, revenge and keeping one's humanity in the darkest of hours.
When we last left them, our heroes Brad and Luke Burns have been hunting their father, the evil Edward King. their search's led them out west, where they've been staying with Anne Macey and her daughter jenny. The boys were able to bond with Anne, but Charles Howard, who wants Anne's land hired 'Fast-Draw Hawk', a notorious killer, to eliminate Anne.
The story now picks up in the aftermath...and if we know Westerns, we know there's a showdown coming.
Thanks to Music, and to Mangastream and Easy Going Scans for introducing us all to this manga. I hope its fans enjoy it. And please remember we're on the lookout for those who can help with web design, cleaners, typesetters and timers.
