Old Boy, Volume 1by Garon Tsuchiya, Nobuaki Minegishi (Illustrator)
Ten years ago, they took him. He doesn't know who. For ten years he has been confined in a private prison. He doesn't know why. For ten years his only contact with the outside world has been a television set and the voice of his jailers. In time, he lost himself... changed... transformed himself into something else... something hard... something lethal. Suddenly one day, his incarceration ends, again without explanation. He is sedated, stuffed inside a trunk, and dumped in a park. When he awakes, he is free to reclaim what's left of his life... and what's left is revenge.

This is the first manga book I've ever read. I actually purchased this one at a B&N bookstore. Once you get used to reading from the back of the book, you'll find yourself immersed in an exciting cloak-and-dagger story with strange flashbacks and well developed characters. I just ordered the next four books in the series, and I hope they're as engrossing as this one.
