Book Review: Randomveus Volume 1



The story takes place in a really vivid and colorful place called Randomveus. Randomveus is well...totally, completely random. It seems like everything and anything is possible here. Anything that you can imagine can happen in Randomveus. You start out delivering packages with the main character, Raimundo. He has to deliver a package to a huge foot with a mouth? Yea, remember I said RANDOM. Raimundo is a courier and he has a pretty complicated life. He turns out to be wanted for some "unknown" reason. Which is actually just unknown to you, but not to me because I've read the book. He ends up being chased all around Randomveus dodging umm... random things all for some money and chowder. Yes you read that correctly, CHOWDER. Apparently there is some awesomely fantastic chowder and Randomveus and people are willing to kill for it.

Randomveus is so stylized with its bright colors and smooth lines. Its full of action and has a wide arrange of characters who are well developed, even if they are completely random. If you like Japanese manga then you will really like this comic book. It is well drawn and, believe it or not, has a good story behind it.
