Black Lagoon, Volume 8by Rei Hiroe
Four hardcore heroes. One high-speed torpedo boat. Ten thousand bullets! R to L (Japanese Style). Roberta's vendetta continues as Revy and Rock enlist some old acquaintances to try and catch up with Roberta before it's too late. They're going to have to get in line since Roberta's got everyone from a U.S. military black ops unit to her ex-F.A.R.C. comrades gunning for her, not to mention the CIA and the NSA. When the turmoil becomes more than the city's criminal underworld can bear, Balalaika and her Hotel Moscow commandos enter the game. With so many players at the table, it's winner take all, and the stakes couldn't be higher! Lock n' load with the baddest group of mercenaries ever to hit the high seas of Southeast Asia! Aboard their World War II torpedo boat, the Black Lagoon, Dutch the Boss, Benny the Mechanic, Revy Two Hand, and Rock, the salaryman from Japan, deliver anything, anywhere. In the dangerous underworld of the Russian Mafia, Chinese triads, Colombian drug cartels, crazed assassins, and ruthless mercenaries, it's hard to know who to trust. But if you've got a delivery to make, and you don't mind a little property damage along the way, you can count on the crew of the Black Lagoon!
