Priest, Volume 10by Min-woo Hyung, Min-Woo Hyung
Ivan Isaacs was once a priest. Devoted to his faith he would have given up anything for it. Then the establishment he believed in turned on him, sending him headlong into Hell. Now, he's back. With the priesthood now corrupt with demons, the undead and black prayers, he has returned with the help of the demon Belial, a voice in the darkness who offered Ivan a chance at vengeance, in exchange for his soul. With his six-shooter, a bowie knife at his side and the white collar of his former life adorning his neck he is a lost pale rider in a barren Wild West where past and future collide.

In the previous nine volumes, Priest has been many things. Zombie b-movie, spaghetti western, star-crossed love story, apocalyptic epic. But in all those incarnations, one theme is ever-present. It is Challenging. It is, at times, a challenge to one's faith, a challenge to ones stomach, and always a challenge to ones intellect. Pushing the limits and breaking every rule at every opportunity. Bending the face of modern, and indeed medieval faith, and skewing the role God plays in the lives of men to an angle few are comfortable with, but few can deny as at least a half-truth. To say that this series is an attack against Christians or Catholics would be absurd. The series is very clear on one thing. God does exist. Min-Woo Hyung has a unique gift of cinematic drawing of not only action sequences, but also deeply emotional moments as well. His unique perspective on faith and religion, while somewhat offensive at first glance, is in fact a mirror by which to compare ones own faith. In my opinion, anyone who was raised in a Christian household should read this series. Simply because it addresses many of the questions and doubts young people have about their faith. If you have not read the first one, go do so at once.
This is one ot the best manga I've ever read!! The detail in the drawings is of a style all its own, beautiful. It's full of suspense, horror, gore, romance, drama, and mild humor in the sense of the situations. This has no particular genre, so you'll have to buy or read it to get a full sense of what type of storyline and plot this has. But this has a magnificent beginning that throughout the story leaves you with an urge to just spend all the money you have on all the rest! I seriously doubt you'll be dissapointed with this series. Enjoy!
