In a post apocalyptic world devoid of seasons, where man's "golden age of technology" ruined earth and caused science to run amok, there live four individuals looking for a door to the hell far below the surface. Through a series of coincidences, the ex-hitman-now-bartender Mihai, the deranged and psychopathic Haine, the vengeful yet kind Naoto, and the freelancer Badou meet one another.

Four wayward characters are brought together by chance and circumstance...the beginnings of the next grand epic or just a bunch of short stories?

STORY - This first volume of DOGS is difficult to judge storywise because it presents itself as a collection of loosely-related oneshots while still functioning as the foundations to a much larger story. There are four main protagonists, and the volume is split accordingly into four sections. The storytelling varies from section to section, with some seeped in flashback and others taking place entirely in the present. It's occasionally a little choppy, but generally things are pretty straightforward. The stories themselves aren't excitingly read more
