Synopsis

Rally Vincent works by day in her Chicago gun store, Gunsmith Cats. But at the drop of the hat, she hangs up the "Gone Fishing" sign, straps on her guns and takes to the road in her muscle car to fulfil her other role - as one of Chicago's toughest, most respected bounty hunters. Her expert sharpshooting and driving skills are augmented by her partner Minnie-May's abilities with explosives of all kinds. And she'll need every bit of her skills, and those of her friends, because only she can bring in the highest bounties and the most determined, powerful criminals from Chicago's mob, characters who hold a grudge for life and have the wits and the firepower to outwit whatever the law throws at them.

Featuring some of the most authentically detailed firearms and automobiles ever drawn, author and artist Kenichi Sonoda has created a complex and supremely exciting story in the vein of hollywood action films, but with all the detail and dynamism of manga in this classic series.

The Blues Brothers is an influence on Gunsmith Cats. The author says so in the preface to volume 1 published by Dark Horse. The author is also a gun-nut, fully recreating in the manga the details of pistols, revolvers, shotguns, machine-guns, grenades and any kind of bullet-proof clothing you can think of.

Gunsmith Cats begins by dropping us straight into a gunfight unceremoniously. Observe a cop getting shot, bodies rushing past, gun-hand POV, shooters sliding across floors, windows shattering and then it’s over as soon as it began. We get a close-up of the manga's first weapon, an S&W M-19, and even read more

Both are about chicks with guns. Unfortunately both aren't exactly drawn out very well, the artwork itself is alright, the girls are cute and sexy but the action is very confusing (due to the transition from panel to panel) you'll often wonder what is going on which is a shame but hopefully for those who managed to understand and liked either titles then you should give the other a shot.

Chicks kicking butt, and both have the feel like they belong in a Hollywood action flick, due to their American-like feel/settings/characters.
