    So, does anyone here read Priest?

    I read it just recently up to Volume 14.

    The art is very unique. Some may not like it, but I do. There's lots of violence and an epic story involving angels, the vatican and undeads.
    Some parts remind me of Hellsing, of course.

    Just for clarification, Priest is actually a manwha, a Korean comic. Also, there are sixteen volumes out in Korea right now, and Tokyopop plans to release the fifteenth volume this November.

    Anyway, Priest is probably my favorite "guilty pleasure" manga. It has unique and captivating art, very good action scenes, and in later volumes it gives some nice characterization. Definitely a spaghetti-western tale, and it has a nice inclusion of Chrisitian lore as well.
