Banya the Explosive Deliveryman
Beautiful artwork with kinetic, visceral action is a sure-fire way to grab the attention of your readers. Banya creator Kim Young-Oh delivers (oh, I went there) this in heaps in this series. Flip open to any page of the book and you will see what I'm talking about. This manga is more than a pretty face, though, it is packed with colorful, well-developed characters and a lush, thought out world.
While it may be a futile hope, I would like to see this character make his way to the big screen some day. Immediate thought might turn towards an animated project, but I think Banya could really sing as a live-action production. Banya said there isn't a delivery he can't make, but I'm still waiting on my movie...
