There is definitely some gore in this title. Twins, whose birth is separated by midnight, must battle evil spirits who demand repayment of a debt incurred by their father. One of these spirits is the spirit of knives who can command thousands of blades at once (which results in much of the aforementioned gore.). The story uses elements of Japanese mythology.
Mike Carey crafts an immediately engaging story of Japanese gods and spirits. Toshi and Kaikou are twins born on either side of midnight, and their family becomes caught up in the machinations of spirits beyond their understanding. Smooth artwork and inventive storytelling throughout. I know this series only survived for three trade paperback volumes, so I am hopeful but not expecting that there will be a satisfactory ending to this story.
