Portus was the first Horror manga I ever read. Maybe that is the reason why it was so impacting on me. It's a one volume book and the storyline is extremely unique. It is a story about revenge, friends, love, and despair.
A lot of the time I could feel the character's fear as I read it. The facial expressions were drawn with such fine detail.
The horrific images that the characters see can disturb you even though they are just simply drawings. I feel that the author did a great job in bringing this story to life. There is only so much you can show
and describe on paper, the emotion's that the author were trying to make the reader feel are all too clear.
The character's proceed to the end as if they were meant to, as if it was their fate.
The story has a bizarre ending. One you would never expect. Two thumbs up!
