XS Hybrid

You will, having seen shots of DMZ, Transmetropolitan and Ohikkoshi (which I think I’ve mentioned, but can’t find), not be surprised that I read manga. I have a weird thing with books, though – I can’t buy one. Especially if it’s the first one. Manga is read much too quickly, it’s like buying only the first two chapters of a book.

Fortunately, the second volume of XS Hybrid was just released! Meaning, I can, after having so long been impressed by the first, as I returned it to the shelf, read it.

XS Hybrid

My scan is poor (and I do need to keep half an eye out for raised hands, so I can’t deal with Photoshop and supervise an exam), but the art and chases are very nicely put-together. From the publishers:

In a strange future where gifted, “hybrid” humans police the planet, Mina is a likeable tomboy with growing psychic powers. When a young boy falls into a coma after gazing into her eyes, it’s clear that there’s more to Mina than her pretty looks. This young boy, Hinchang, grows up to be quite a daredevil, and his awkward, secret love for Mina fuels his protective fire when mysterious men arrive, bringing the violence of the “hybrid” world with them!
