Trigun by yasuhiro nightow
Reviewed by: Grady
Trigun is about a pacifist named Vash The Stampede. Vash has a large bounty on his head and is, at the start of the story, hunted down by locals and anyone who wants a piece of the bounty. The art is the strong point of Trigun and the art is at its best in the chase scenes and fight scenes. In fight scenes, Vash finds ways to avoid violence like firing darts with suction cups instead of bullets to confuse and startle his opponents. The chase scenes depict Vash evading gun fire and mobs of greedy townsfolk chasing his bounty. These scenes are colored by comedic moments as Vash taunts his pursuers and dupes inept enemies. In one of my favorite scenes Vash faces a woman with a gun pointed at him who explains to him how she intends to split the bounty while, through the window behind her, what appears to be the entire town is rallied with pitchforks and shotguns. Trigun is great entertainment and would be a useful book for an aspiring artist.
