Synopsis

Word is out that the "Hemingway Papers", the newly discovered last novel by the great author, tells the hiding place of a buried treasure on a desolate Mediterranean island. Lupin sneaks onto the island where, instead of treasure-hunting, he finds himself embroiled in a violent struggle for power. To Lupin's surprise, his old buddies Jigen and Goemon are also in the fight for their own reasons. Marcus the Merchant of Death also lands on the island accompanied by Fujiko, Lupin's greatest weakness, and followed by the police inspector, who is forever on Lupin's tail.

I'm writing this for people who are already familiar with Lupin III so if you aren't search up reviews for the main series instead.

Story: Fairly basic set up. Two sides fighting for land and a treasure and Lupin stuck in the middle of it all trying to get the treasure for himself. I didn't enjoy this as much as Farewell Lady Liberty, but it is still pretty good. It is more focused than its predecessor, but it doesn't have as many stakes, through I admit there's a scene with Jigen and Goemon duking it out that's pretty funny.

Art: The same as Lady Liberty in both read more

Hemingway Papers is a pretty enjoyable early Lupin special.

Lupin and the gang end up on an island where two tyrants are having a conflict, and a sleazy arms dealer is in the middle. That guy wants a treasure, and of course so do Lupin and Fujiko.

Jigen has a pretty interesting role in this, getting hired by one of the tyrants to infiltrate them and get revenge against a crazy mercenary, who he has a problem with from the past. They really play up Jigen's stoic badass nature in this, which is nice.

Goemon hears that a chest can't be cut by his legendary Zantetsuken blade, so read more
