Hmm is a bit sceptic about this one. Sure Death Note was a great ride until it became incredibly boring and pretentious after the fast forward in time.

Caution:
that link is addictive.
Once you click the first one, you'll find you can stop reading until you've consumed all the issues available -- i.e. four issues, as of now.

Too late. I m already addicted to it.

It's a great first chapter. Anyone who hasn't checked it out needs to. It is completely what you wouldn't expect from these two manga-ka.
Dur...


Fixed back. I meant what I typed (I hate it when people do that :) ).
