Take yourself back to the 1880s where the KKK is thriving and the African American community lives in fear. The African Americans don't fear the KKK simply because they beat, rape, and kill them. No. They fear the KKK because the KKK eats them. They are the aptly named man-eaters, a kind of mix between werewolves and vampires. They consume human flesh, can shapeshift into various forms, and are practically immortal. Only one man, an ex-heavyweight boxer named Victor Freeman, dares to stand up to them. Equipped with a small arsenal and a set of modified brass knuckles, can our hero defend his people and avenge his past?

Have you ever wondered what early Berserk would be like if the Black Swordsman were actually black, the demons he fought were members of the KKK, and the whole thing was set in the American southwest of 1880? Well, Blaster Knuckle is the answer you your questions.

Blaster Knuckle is one of those novelty manga that no matter whether it’s any good or not, is going to get it’s own little cult fanbase just for being what it is. The plot is as follows - Victor Freeman is a former heavyweight boxer whose father was killed by the KKK when he was young. However, Victor knows read more

Testosterone filled delivery of anachronisms which doesn't jump out from the ordinary, except for incorporation of a black protagonist; highly commendable and welcomed, even if only for the refreshment worth. For everything else it remains on already-seen basis, albeit presents it with certain vivaciousness which supplement the enjoyment value.

Environment in which it plays is perhaps the most memorable point, since plot is stuck in one firm direction and characters are debilitated in their development. They do have a few distinctive attributes, even if they are merely on appearance and manly portrayal basis. Basically, both plot and characters are affected by short duration, which in the read more

I've always been a sucker for over the top and ridiculous action in anime and manga. What makes this type of action even better is if there's a special spin or twist added in to make the action more unique. Blaster Knuckle is a manga that is unique in many ways. Anime and manga that take place in the Western Hemisphere aren't exactly unheard of but they aren't common either.

Coming into this manga I thought it was gonna be just basic action with gun duels and a great western feel. Well I was correct on 2 thirds of that prediction but the read more

'Blaster Knuckle': A niche seinen historical horror manga from the early 90's created by a good friend of THE Kentaro Miura. Sounds good already, right? Unfortunately, it was cancelled only 20 chapters in (you can surmise why after reading the story segment) and was never continued again. The existing chapters, however, make for a good weekend read thanks to a strong plot, gloriously gory art, and well-rounded characters.

[Story - 8]

The story is rather unique for a 'monster-hunter' setting: It follows the adventures of Victor Freeman, a black man living in the southern USA during the 1880's. After witnessing shapeshifting beasts eat people alive as a read more
